PBA Arbitration Decision Final

November 17, 2015

There is no indication yet as to what the PBA will do regarding the remaining years of their contract.

The PBA’s decision was finalized on Friday, Nov. 6th. The terms are two years with 1% and 1% and a $50 increase in uniform allowance money. The effective dates of the decision are Aug. 1st, 2010 to July 31, 2012. The decision does not include a payout on Terminal Leave.

Here’s the back story: The PBA anticipates an arbitration decision by mid-November.

Here’s the back story: The PBA completed all of their hearing dates and submitted their finals briefs. Due to the UFA’s pending ratification vote, the City asked the arbitrator to allow the record to remain open in order to introduce the UFA’s deal into evidence. The Arbitrator agreed, therefore a PBA decision is not expected until mid-November. Here’s more back story: The PBA’s arbitration started on May 8th with 14 hearing dates scheduled through June 18. They had several hearing dates already, with two additional dates added in the last week of June. A decision was expected in the fall. Here’s more back story: On February 26, 2015, the SBA announced a contract with the City that was pattern conforming to the settlement reached (11% over seven years) by the Uniformed Supervisory Coalition. The City agreed to allow the SBA to fund the first 1% raise effective on the first day of the contract. The DEA held the City to its commitment to pattern parity. As a result, our contract has been amended to reflect the SBA’s start date of the first 1% raise now to be effective on the first day of the contract: April 12, 2012 (instead of October 1, 2012).
