The mid year financial report from Matt Lalla is posted on the web site.
Yesterday afternoon I met with FF regarding the longevity pay for members who have had their L-step recalculated based on police time versus time with the City in any other employee capacity. This EMPLOYEE benefit has been a long-standing past practice and after explaining it to the ACM/Chief he seemed to understand and clearly indicated the overall intent of the negotiations process was to restore benefits not to diminish them.
In addition we discussed the individuals who were singled out on the slotting of steps (members under 4 years). We have attempted to ascertain the reasoning behind this clause. FF has been in contact with Paul Ryder however he advised he is committed to fixing it with The PBA.
