CONTRACT UPDATE


As previously announced, the interest arbitration hearings for a successor to our expired 2010-2012 labor agreement were held beginning January 12, 2015.   The hearing took four (4) days and concluded on January 15, 2015.


At the close of hearings, the arbitrator set deadlines for both parties to submit post-hearing briefs by Friday, March 13th, 2015.   Reply briefs are then due fourteen (14) days thereafter.   At that point, the record will be closed, and the arbitrator will begin writing his decision.


As you are aware, the arbitrator was selected jointly by both parties.  Both parties; the City and MPSO, had equal strikes from a random pool provided by the WERC.  During the hearings, the arbitrator provided both parties, both the City and MPSO, full and equal opportunity to present evidence and witnesses, and to cross-examine and rebut each other’s evidence and witnesses.  The arbitrator now has the responsibility of ending the parties’ impasse by deciding the terms of a new labor agreement.  Although he has the authority to fashion his own decision on each item as he sees fit based on the evidence and testimony he was provided, each of the final offers for the issues at impasse are reflected below for member’s information:


MPSO Final Offer

Effective PP  1, 2013, a  2.9% ATB Increase in Base Salary

Effective PP  1, 2014, a  2.9% ATB Increase in Base Salary


City Final Offer

Effective PP  1, 2013, a  2.0% ATB Increase in Base Salary


Effective PP  1, 2014, a  1.0% ATB Increase in Base Salary

Effective PP14, 2014, a  1.0% ATB Increase in Base Salary

Effective PP25, 2014, a  0.5% ATB Increase in Base Salary


Effective upon ratification, implement a minimum retirement age of 52,

regardless of years of service for employees newly enrolled in the ERS.


            The arbitrator has wide flexibility as far as when he will issue his decision, so we cannot give a precise timeline.

Accrued Time Off Donor Program


One of our own, Lt. Chris Blaszek, has recently been placed in the Accrued Time Off Donor Program.  As you know, Chris has been in a desperate battle against cancer, and he and his family need our support.  If you haven’t already done so, please fill out the Donor Leave Intent Form pdf and donate some time to keep Chris on the payroll.  Simply fill out the form and interoffice it to any MPSO Board member:

Kerhin - District Six

Patti - District Two

Wroblewski - District Four

Charles - District Seven

Seitz - District Four

Duran - Inspections

We prefer that you submit forms in increments of not more than 8 hours, e.g. if you want to donate 40 hours, submit five 8 hour forms.  This helps us tailor the submissions to specific needs and have a more equitable submission of donations.  Once we receive the form, it is held by us until the time is needed and then submitted on his behalf.  If the time is not needed, we dispose of the form and your time balance will not be charged.
