As you know, the FOP achieved an increase in the amount of the Uniform Maintenance Checks. The Uniform Maintenance benefit is now 500 dollars.
Members of the Sheriff’s Department received their Uniform Allowance and Uniform Maintenance checks and the checks were short by 175 dollars.
A grievance has been filed regarding this improper payment and this will be corrected.
This issue will also be raised during the upcoming Sheriffs Contract Unfair Labor Practice, which is scheduled before the Pennsylvania State Labor Board on October 24, 2011.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Lodge at 215 629 3600.
