FOP Response for 2016 Commonwealth Court Residency decision.
Posted On: Jan 07, 2016
"You can understand the frustration of the membership with having a ruling overturned that was awarded in arbitration and then Common Pleas Court. Ultimately we believe the case will be heard in the Pa. Supreme Court and we feel strongly that we will prevail.
The bigger issue here locally is that we currently have 340 plus pension eligible employees. Many of which who may very well make this a determination factor of whether they retire or not. This will also effect the possible recruitment pool of potential qualified candidates to backfill the many retirements we may be facing over the next few years."
