The Florida PBA state board meeting was held this weekend in Orlando. Several legislators attended and were honored by the FLPBA for their help during the last session. As you are aware the FLPBA has made great strides in litigating against the governors plan to privatize state correctional facilities.
The 185 suit is being worked on and I have seen parts of the draft copy. We hope to have it ready to be filed by next week.
Wilton Manors is in contract negotiations and hopefully near an agreement. Rod Skirvin is the lead negotiator. All 28 members voted for, and asked for a BSO to proposal to merge. This was done to leverage the city back to the table as none of the Commissioners or community wanted the merger to occur.
I took up CSR’s (city manager)offer to have BSO provide us with responses to questions the PBA wanted answered. I asked for the last 10 deputies from DLE(department of law enforcement) who were terminated and the investigative summary on those terminated. I also asked for the facts on Braswell’s termination and the EEOC complaints made by the female victims leading up to his dissmissel.
The Hollywood IAFF President Dan Martinez stepped down as president. The PBA enjoyed working with Dan and wish him well.
