In Support and Honor of wounded Police Sergeant Keith McNeill, the FOP will hold a Blood Drive on Wednesday, April 2nd from 0900-1430 hours at the FOP Hall.

Contract Negotiations

The FOP Labor Committee met with the City of Baltimore on three consecutive days last week to negotiate a new contract for FY2014, FY2015 and FY2016.  We are pleased to report we have reached an agreement on a new work schedule for the Patrol Division that incorporates a 10-hour working day on a 4-on, 3-off concept and substantially increases the number of weekends and H-days a member will receive. On the economic front, we continue to negotiate and hopefully we will have a tentative agreement within the next few weeks. If we are able to reach an agreement, the entire package will be presented to the membership for a vote.

Pension Lawsuit

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit has scheduled oral arguments for May 14, 2014.  In the meantime, the Mayor has agreed to sit down one more time prior to oral arguments and attempt to settle the lawsuit with the FOP and Fire Unions.  

We will keep the membership informed with any developments on either contract negotiations or the pension lawsuit.

This afternoon, Gene Ryan and I visited with Keith McNeill and his family at Shock Trauma. Keith's wife Danielle asked that we provide this update to everyone in the BPD:

For the first time since Keith was shot, Danielle is feeling better and remains optimistic Keith will pull through.  Keith is scheduled to undergo another operation tomorrow (Wednesday) that will last about 4-5 hours. The first part of the operation will involve the general surgeon working on his torso followed by another surgeon who will operate on Keith's arm.  The good news is there is blood flow in Keith's arm and the doctors are confident the operation will be successful.

Danielle and the entire McNeill family thank everyone for their prayers and support. It remains a long road to full recovery but Keith is fighting hard and he is in good hands at Shock Trauma.

--Bob Cherry
