So I guess union leaders are waiting for the Jan29 vote for further procrastination. The measure is going to pass, as the majority of South Floridians think that this will bring property tax relieve. My question is, how worst can it get after it is all said and done? I was thinking of applying for this department but from the reading of these threads, it seems as a bad idea after the measure passes.

If it becomes inevitable that the COLA is unachievable, perhaps our negotiators should aim for an increase in the pension multiplier, from .03375 to .035 at a minimum. It may be easier to bargain for as it is a constant and not something that compounds on itself as a COLA does. We have to salvage something from this negotiation. I am as in the dark as everyone else but I think the City side is willing to cut off its nose to spite its face, sacrificing everything just to not give in to us on that issue.

Yes but why so little when the rest of municipalities are getting what they want. Sunrise definitely has no more revenue than Fort Lauderdale. Miami was just in the same boat as you guys and they did pretty well. Why is Fort Lauderdale so cheap when the money is there. If you settle for less you will get just that, fight it all the way or be resigned to be the chums of Browards.

The State 1% money pays for our disability portion of our pension which keeps our cost down and the pension solvent.

Medical is free for the employee and you pay 1/3 the cost for family member. The city has also set up a retirement health savings account that they fund for you and you can contribute also. The insurance itself is ok not the best and we certainly have had worst (Humana right now).

Pension is 3.2% times years of service (25 years for normal retirement or 10 and age 52). All overtime is included in the compensation average and the first $10,000 in detail pay. If you work $10,000 in details you can boost your final payout to 91.5% (sweet huh!)

We have lots of overtime available if you want to work it and lots of off-duty details. We have the two race tracks with their casinos, plus other detail work.

THATS HALLANDALE PD, WHAT DO WE HAVE ?

A: Real police, real policework. So shouldn't we be compensated as such?

The vote on Amendment 1 is this week... Isn't that the new "deadline?" Maybe we should be working safer. I'm ready.

What does Hallandale have? read todays paper they had two officers fired over trumped up charges and their union did nothing. They had to suit the city

Forgive me if I botch the details, but didn't we have a city official railroad one of our own? A case of a d!ckhead dope dealer's word being better than ours? (another reason to work safely...)

We all have to deal w/political sh!t. At least Hallandale gets paid a competitive wage. And a 90%+ pension??? I'd almost be a security guard for that.

The vote is in and the city administration has its excuse to shove it up our a$$es (again). How many deadlines have we had, then done nothing when they pass? Shall we set a new deadline? Easter, maybe, and if they don't negotiate fairly by then, boy, we'll fix them, we'll set yet another deadline. Any scabs not working to the rule by now should be isolated and treated like the traitors they are.
