Balto. City Police Reject Contract, 19 to 1

The story by Julie Scharper in the Sun. The contract would have reduced wages by 1.95 percent in exchange for five additional vacation days. The FOP president said, "It's not just a rejection of the city's best offer. It's a rejection of the mayor and her inability to respect what these men and women do for the city every day and every night."

Now if there's no new contract, the old one stays in effect, right? When I was there, the city dragged its heals for years on giving us a contract. Now it seems like the shoe is now on the other foot.

It's about time the officers stood up to the city. The city has been shitting on them for a long time now. I hope the officers win there court case against the city too!!
If Sheila Dixon can keep 80 thousand a year for stealing gift cards. Then the officers should get what was promised to them. She is getting twice the amount most officer will get for retirement.

Don't know if you caught it, but a Greek American policeman in MD made national news yesterday.
