    That would be our luck, I'm calling bs to though. I wonder when the 45 that took the 55 and out will be shown in the retirement rolls. I thought they retired in nov.

    If that were the case it would be on the front page of the Scum Times. As for the 45, they are technically still on the employment rolls till the end of the year. Look for their names in the pension report then.

    I heard about 180 guys worked their last day in november. They wont show up in the pension report, since most scheduled their 3 furloughs for the end of the year.

    i know one guy in the 1200's who is ready to go into the next class (not 111). i know another who is in the 1400's, and has only done (and passed) the PAT. they may have sent interest cards out, up to 2400, but there seems to be alot of guys still waiting in the 1100 and up range.

    hopefully they get the special class in on time, and that gets things moving for the rest of you.

    Hey all hope the holidays treated every one well. RUMOR ALERT I know I said I was done with rumors but whatever I guess lol. I heard june or exactly three months after the lawsuit class they are having another class of us. Who knows though I'm not hanging my hat on it. Although it was from an instructor at quinn and a couple high ups. Any one else here anything?

    Just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year. Maybe 2012 will be better.
    Looks like March 2012 will be the 3 year marker for all the 3/2009 PAT guys waiting. I didn't think I would be going on 2 years since my April 2010 PAT. Good luck to everyone

    FYI the Final December retirement numbers came out and 91 went out in DEC. and 192 for the year. this year a minimum of 135 are going to go with the 55 and out so looking at i would say minimum of 200 to 225 or more for 2012. And factor in the bout 150 promotions. so they are down quite a bit and thats not even to mention what would happen if the pension for current members gets messed with. Manning is locked in till 2014 also. im hoping and praying hard that this is my/our year for getting hired!

    Keep any news that you might hear coming. I have been following this thread like many for years and though these pages are full of false hopes and promises, I think the great majority of us enjoy reading anything that's out there on the streets. So as always thanks for the contribution and keep it coming. I actually haven't been on here in months, so it's good to come back to some news and hopefully it all holds true. Guess I better get down to City Hall and update my address....

    Maybe the other gentlemen was referencing a couple paramedic classes to who knows. All I know is I pray I/we get on this year. It seems to be the trend of a slow build up of good news and rumors then nothing happens or they cancel the class. I just hope its for real and I and us waiting get in. thank you for the info though.

    Been very quiet around here lately. Can anyone confirm that these 111 knuckleheads are going to academy in March? I'm hoping that starts the ball rolling again...
