      Brothers and Sisters;

      Today the City Council Rules committee met and discussed Bill 2015-54 (pension reform). After much debate a motion was made to amend the agreement previously approved by the PFPF at its January 5th meeting. The amendment changed the language submitted to limit the term (length) of the agreement from 10 years to 3 years. This gives the City the ability to take unilateral action and impose changes to the benefits. This would in turn force the FOP and JAFF to demand collective bargaining. This almost certainly would result in impasse, where the outcome could be determined by a third party.

      The next step, is for the full council to hear the newly amended bill (Tuesday March 10th), and have either an “up or down” vote, or possibly refer it back to a committee. Previously this bill passed through the Finance  and the RCDPHS (public safety), committees intact and unchanged.

      I ask that all of the members call their respective council members (or all of them), and ask that they NOT approve this bill as amended. If this bill passes the council, it will be sent back to the PFPF Board of Trustees for their approval.

      Please contact the police trustee A/C Larry Schmitt and ask that he not support this amended bill. Also, please take the time to call all of the PFPF Trustees (904-255-7373) and ask that they NOT support the amended bill.
