    It will definitely affect you unless you are an Emt/medic hired before April of 2010 or whatever that date was. Working for the city already otherwise means nothing. When you switch over you will be placed in the same new tier everyone else is entering under.

    yes it would effect everyone who gets hired after the contract is settled. If they make it 7 years to top pay and have new hires pay into medical then it would apply to anyone that gets hired after that contract is settled.

    The only thing that would be effected since u already work for the city is that you would keep your pension tier and your time is pensionable.

    Not quite. You don't have to have been in EMS to have your pension carry over. Any pensionable time at a city job and I think any pensionable time at a state job allow you to carry over your pension start date and if it's before 7/1/2009 that means you can convert your pension to tier 2. If you started with the city between 71/2009 and I think 4/1/2012 then you would be able to convert to tier 3. If after 4/1/2012 then you're going into 3 modified by 6 (the current setup).

    I love when someone trying to get on this job (and every police dept. on Long Island) speaks like they're in the know.

    Not one word has been spoken about contract negotiations, none. Not in the press and not at Union meetings. Worry about getting on, not contract negotiations. Sometimes there are give backs that accompany a raise. Guess what, you'll get that raise too, when you get there.

    If that's a problem, don't take the job. Someone who wants it more will step into your shoes in a second.

    Bro you got it all wrong! He wants this job like crazy, unless Suffolk PD calls.

    Like I said above the 7 years to top pay and paying more for insurance are things other unions have negotiated, but as southbx said there's been zero talks between the UFA and the city.

    For the people who received their packets. Can anyone tell me how much time from when you receive your packet until your first scheduled interview which I believe is the intake interview?

    Do you have to also hand anything in before the intake interview?

    Thanks guys. So I estimate that if they are rescheduling people's intake interview into march because of the snow, then they probably will not get around to sending out new packets until at least March or maybe April.

    This would give me to at least May or June for my intake interview as I am mid 25XX#.

    Trying to plan a trip and do not want to be forced to come back early.

    Does anyone know if you need to hand in anything before the intake interview?

    Thanks.

    Your right. There hasn't been talks but the NYPD PBA has started and u can bet if they go to 7years top pay and paying into medical that the FDNY will follow. Its called pattern bargaining and it happens all the time with the city uniformed forces.

    There's been a lot of FD fireman who left for nassau/suffolk pds and other long island police depts. What is your point? I take tests and leave my options open. If I get onto FD and then switch over then thats my choice and I wont be the first.

Calling Metrotech or DCAS for definite info was fruitless because obviously there isn't any definite info yet.

    So, on a boned scale of 1-10 how boned am I? How lenient are they about rescheduling a run or processing day? If there's even a .0001% chance of me getting skipped over I wont. Worst case scenario I might just have to do the run then make a mad dash to get married haha. Would just moving the ceremony up from 11am to 3pm be enough. As you might infer I'm slightly stressed about this.

    You could always go ahead and solve all your stress and problems and not get married
