As you may know we will be receiving a hazard pay bonus. (see previous posts)
This well deserved hazard pay was initially tied to a 1 year contract extension. After meeting with the commissioners I was able to persuade them to drop the 1 year extension. In my meetings, the commissioners explained all 1st line responders need to be recognized for their roles during the unrest. Therefore, they could not meet our financial request. All unions have accepted the county's offer and will be receiving the "front line responder" funds of $1500.00. To note it was a take it or leave it offer and time sensitive with no room for further negotiations. I am available by phone or email should you have any questions or would like more information about the meeting that led up to hazard pay bonus. AND YES I KNOW we all wanted to see more monies.
