The City’s Offer was as follows:
1 year agreeement”this is the absolute best we can do” LOL “then in 2014 we can resume negotiations and HOPEFULLY can do more” states CSR
lump sum payment in mid december of approximately $606,000 divided among the HFD membership which equates to about $3000 per firefighter. (NON PENSIONABLE)
A back drop for up to five years.Explained but very confusing.
A cash out of time on the books option when you reach normal retirement age.
$200 Flex spending account to help with medical co-payments
Use of 175 monies released from the state this year for a share account OR to reduce pension contributions. The state will be releasing 185 funds as well for this year as the city was previously in compliance $1,111,000.
HFD would have to drop all litigation against the city.
Opinion: they are concerned about the litigation.
Justin Serian and Cliff Germano also attended. No Sheehan came late I assume she is still hoping for the Fire fighters endorsement!
