Akron Laying Off 38 Members?
Is it true the leadership in Akron would rather lay off 38 of their members instead of freezing longevity pay?
<<<Leaders of the 368-member fire union turned down an offer by the city to rescind layoff notices in exchange for a deferral of this year's longevity payments -- bonuses based on years of service -- until 2012.>>>>
Sounds like the old timers are more interested in their retirement than letting 38 newer members keep their jobs. I say shame on you. If those are the facts, thats the old timers screwing the rookies.
PROUD IAFF member who would never give my new guys a shaft.
