New MOU Agreement Ratification Information

PLEA and Fire came to an agreement with the City on a 3 year MOU for 2016-2019 which includes FULL restoration of all concessions and the potential of a raise in the 3rd year.  While we didn’t get everything we wanted, we believe this to be a fair contract as our number 1 priority was making YOUR paycheck whole on day 1.  There will be NO unpaid holidays and in the first year alone, a topped out Officer has the potential to see an increase in their paycheck of over $3000 compared to the previous year.  The PLEA Board voted unanimously to recommend to the membership a “DO PASS” or a “Yes” vote on the agreement.  Voting will be next week starting Monday, May 2, 2016 at 7:30 AM until Friday, May 6th at 4:30 PM at the PLEA office.

We have also scheduled 6 informational meetings for next week as follows:

  • Tuesday, May 3, 2016 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM
  • Wednesday May 4, 2016 9:00 PM
  • Thursday May 5, 2016 1000 AM and 9:00 PM
  • Friday May 6th 10:00 AM

Here is a breakdown of percentages and what they amount to:

Year 1: 1.9%

  • NO unpaid holidays: $1254
  • FULL uniform allowance restored (was $500 for last two years, back to $1150): $650 increase
  • Ability to sell 40 hours BV time in December: $1394

Year 2: 1.0%

  • Restore City Deferred comp contribution
  • Restore $6.00 per paycheck city PEHP contribution

Year 3: 1.3%

  • Restore City Deferred Comp contribution

The agreement also preserves merit steps and longevity steps.

PLEA believes that this is a fair contract and keeps us as the highest compensated Officers in the State of Arizona.
