The PBA has been asking about the Michael Nila report on the morale of the department.I received an e-mail from FF this am which indicated the report arrived in the mail yesterday. I have asked for a copy.
The pension actuary did a presentation on the Backdrop vs the forward DROP at the pension board meeting friday.I am fundamentally against the backdrop as it cost more in the long run and is not competitive with surrounding agencies. ASK yourself if it such a good deal then why doesn’t everyone else have it. Also for those on the command staff who think it is not a bad deal ask them if they would like to trade their 8 year, no contribution and 8% guarantee for a backdrop? Remember the City needs 5 votes t impose the backdrop on the membership.
Anyone seen the Fire contract….I heard they are close…for the last 6 weeks!
The PBA is still attempting to get a copy of the contingency plan sent over to FF by VA which addresses the pending personal shortages. I spoke to BSO/HR and the first wave of members leaving Hollywood as a result of the pay cuts and benefit reductions is coming soon.
