Last week I met individually with 4 of the 5 county commissioners; to include chair kaffoury. The goals of the meetings:

  1. Establish a better relationship with the county commissioners (politics)

  2. Explain all the struggles of being a corrections deputy/sgt

  3. Acknowledgement of the good work we do and prove the humaneness of our workforce

  4. Discuss why the hazard duty pay tied to a contract extension is not good for our members.

After these meetings I felt a sense of accomplishment. The commissioners all admitted to a poor relationship with MCCDA. They apologized and asked I share with all members their regret for the poor connections. In the next coming weeks my goal is to bring each commissioner into the facilities and meet with our members.

I informed the commissioners a hazard pay tied to a contract extension was not in the best interest of our membership. It appears they were listening. Today, I received good information, the chair has decided to remove the 1 yr contract extension. Therefore, members will receive $1500.00 hazard duty pay. (Look for a follow up post with more info).
