Union Deplores Mayor’s Unilateral Pay and Benefit Cuts

 

AFSCME District Council 47 deplores the Mayor’s cuts in wages and benefits for non-represented City employees.

 

“What the Mayor is imposing, like a thief in the night, and solely at his whim, is a pay and benefit cut for the vast majority of city employees,” stated AFSCME District Council 47 President Cathy Scott.  “For some it is a massive pay cut.

 

“It is not something we would negotiate.  It is not something we would accept.

 

“Shame on the Mayor for doing this to 5 ,000 hard working employees who have already gone four years without a pay increase.

 

“His statement today that this ‘Package links raises and benefit reforms” is neither a raise nor a reform.

 

“It is a pay cut, pure and simple” added Scott

 

She explained that the 2.5 percent salary increase is greatly offset by the lost pay and benefits included in the package.

 

The Mayor’s imposition of the ability to furlough workers for 15 days amounts to a 6 percent pay CUT.

 

The demand that employees contribute a new 1.5 percent of pay in pension contributions is a 1.5 percent pay CUT.

 

Greatly increased out-of-pocket medical payments of up to $1,200/annually are a $1,200 pay CUT.

 

“Changes in overtime is a pay CUT and may lead to reduced services to at-risk children.

 

“The attempted unilateral increased payments and reduced benefits for pension benefits for some employees is of questionable legality under Pennsylvania law and will not stand,” Scott said.

 

“We will explore and employ every legal avenue to ensure that members of AFSCME Local 2186 are protected against this pension benefit grab by Nutter.

 

“This whole ‘package’ is a deceit.  And, it proves that the Nutter Inaugural promise of fair payments and contracts for City employees was a fraud.

 

“You can’t claim to help employees by putting $2.50 in the worker’s right pocket while stealing $10.00 from their left pocket.

 

“The Mayor should be embarrassed that this deceit and the harm he and he alone, so proudly imposes on his loyal employees will be his legacy.

 

“There’s nothing in this package that any worker anywhere in America would wish for,” concluded Scott.

public sector, Nutter

    Even though I voted that prnaets should not be held legally responsible for children's actions once they are over 13, this doesn't exactly say everything. First, I think the law should allow for prnaets who neglect their children to be held responsible for criminal negligence if their child commits a crime (regardless if they're 6, 13 or 17 1/2). This is not the same as saying they are guilty of the violent crime their child commits. I believe that the biggest issue is how the prnaets will be held accountable in the eyes of the Lord. Proverbs 22:6 teaches prnaets to train up your children in the ways of the Lord and when they are old, they will not depart from it. If we make disciples of our children, we are doing right under God's authority, which is more important than man's. In Jesus' name.

    There are definitely quite a lot of dialets like that to take into consideration. That may be a great level to convey up. I provide the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you convey up where crucial factor might be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around things like that, however I am certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin seo
