The City needs more cops with out a doubt, but after the new contract was signed who would want to be one, paying 50 percent for mediclal for your spouse and having no medical benefits for your kids is ridiculous. I was wondering if the new contract that the union management signed is the same as the cops
Ozzie hits the nail on the head! The latest Contract for the PD decimated medical and pension benefits for new hires. So what happens now? Lower caliber candidates for the positions. Who is gonna take on a job risking your life when you can’t get coverage medically for your kids?
Are they doing anything this time around to help New Haven residents better prepare for the exams?
