So if Carlucci is saying that the University has so much "Cash" how about they offer up some of it for take homes, equipment, tasers, etc.

We keep hearing about how much they have, can we see some of it ?

The state system, that pays into your retirement, gaurantees the retirees a 3% raise. On the state system the retirees are alwasy taken care of with the cost of living raise, but the current workers struggle with the below 3%. Good for retirees, not good for people currently working. And on a system where your retirement is payed for without contributing, thats just the way it is going to be.

Personally I would rather pay in a percentage and get out at 20 years...That's just me though :o)

Well if we a "bounus" instead of an actual pensionable raise, we may have to pay into our pensions.

I'm sure the bobble heads that sit on the other side of the table are well taken care of for refusing the rank and file workers a decent raise.

Oh by the way usgov Jobs has quite a few decent paying jobs in the area.

That job is a pay raise, but to me it looks like the same thing USF is trying to pull; getting qualified applicants for a job, at a lower pay rate. That deal advertised is pretty the same deal advertised in 95/96'' for Bosnia, I'm guessing..., but then it was a salary of tax free, 90k-100k. I would guess that job is going over seas too..., getting paid less, and getting taxed.

Heard on the news USF was awarded another research grant of 190 million in grants for research. A report about 9 months ago reported said 24 million was unaccountd for at USF, and their budget was a lot bigger than the City of Tampa budget. What happened to that investigation? You're tellinig me there is no money for what the police department needs to function?

In their eyes 2 security guards a shift have solved all the security issues here at USF. As long as nothing "big" happens they could care less about this Department. We are just annoying them by bringing out FACTS.

I will be the first one to talk to the media when something does happen here. I WILL NOT HOLD BACK "CARL".

Carl should show up at one of our meetings in svc2070 and tell us in person, in front of our PBA reps and lawyer, to shut up about whats going on here.

Let something happen to one of us after we told this University and the media that we are understaffed. You will be paying lawsuits for years. Its more than a money issue its a safety issue. This place finds money for every other Bulls hit need. But will nickel and dime this Department to death.

11-16-2007, 07:55 PM
Well thats about it I guess :shock:

11-17-2007, 07:17 PM
If anything happens out here Carl's ass in on the line. I don't care if he hires 10 VPs to but a buffer between us and him, any idiot with half a brain will FOLLOW THE MONEY. All the people at HR we have been dealing with, Sandy, Truuudi, etc, they all report DIRECTLY to you carl.
