The second session votes for the ratification of the two-year Collective bargaining agreement are 77 yes and 5 no.
The membership has now ratified the agreement and I will notify the City Manager in writing.
Tomorrow on Wednesday 7/17 /13 at 1330 the Commission will have the second reading of the Pension Ordinance and vote on the resolution for the Collective bargaining Agreement.
Several of the new commissioners have mentioned the lack of attendance by PBA members at the last commission meeting (7/3/13). When I explained some of the reasons they understood however THEY were not responsible for the financial urgency declarations.
Tomorrow in the commission chambers the votes will take place at 1330 and will be brief so I am asking members on or off duty to stop by and attend the meeting. Members on duty should be able to attend like the other first responders who attend on duty.
If you are still to angry to attend I fully understand and support your decision.
