TMOFS received some positive news late yesterday regarding the contract negotiations scheduled for Friday, July 24, 2015 at 2 p.m. (Room 215 in City Hall). I realize this process, including the declaration of impasse, has taken a long time. I thank you for hanging in there. I am optimistic the handshake on the deal will take place this Friday. Please take into consideration the PBA has been working the back channels to restore the benefits taken during 2011 F/U.
All of this takes time.
Yes, the blog has been slow since FF/CSR went south. I have stayed away from any controversial issues that might compromise the collective bargaining objectives. Efforts have been redirected to focus on active members who lost so much for no justifiable reason.
Thanks again for your support.
