  • Robert's Review, November 2018
    Updated On: Nov 06, 2018
    ROBERT DAVIS, Sgt.-At-Arms

    November is here! I  hope everyone is ready for Thanksgiving. When this new administration took over we had 5,400 members. Now, ten months later, we have over 6,300 members. More people than ever are just showing up wanting to join. Just the other day we had 10 officers show up from an agency who we don’t even represent as their bargaining agent. A lot of officers don’t know that even if the PBA is not your bargaining group, you can still be a member and we will represent you individually. I would also like to welcome Monroe County police and corrections, who we now represent. 

    Our main focus has been servicing our members and addressing their needs. On that note, on Thursday, November 29th, we will be having another Heart Bill Seminar. The purpose of these seminars is to give our members advice on how they should proceed with Worker’s Comp cases. Even if you have been denied in the past, come and talk to an attorney and find out what your rights are. It doesn’t have to be a heart bill condition, it can be any kind of Worker’s Comp case for which you might need advice. Representation is free. Advice is free. We wouldn’t do it any other way. I also listened to the members’ requests and we will have two seminars on that day: one from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and another from at 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Come out, get your questions answered, and learn what your rights are when dealing with Worker’s Comp. 

    On October 19th, we had our second domino tournament and once again it was a great success. I think we’re going to need a bigger place if things keep going the way they are. We enjoy hosting our members here and addressing there concerns. 

    Next topic: the contract. Let’s just say that by the print time of this article we should have some numbers to present to our members and I can tell you it won’t be the 0, 0, 0 that was presented to us on our first meeting with the County. Without giving away too much, I’m sure our members will be pleased.  Everywhere I go that’s always one of the first questions that members ask and I’m always hesitant to answer because we are not allowed to give out information when negotiations are ongoing. Just know that I want a raise as much as anyone so it is definitely a priority for us here at your PBA. 

    As always, in closing, stay safe out there.
