Welcome to the forum! I hear what you are saying, when hard times comes there are no raises. But, when the hard times came along, did the FOP petition the city for LESS
money? 1984, AT&T told it's employees that they were thinking about moving over seas, because it just cost to much to make phones in America. IBEW demanded a pay raise for it's employees. I told IBEW that I would take a cut in pay to keep my job, they laughed at me! 1 month later almost 8,000 folks were looking for a job from the Shreveport plant alone!
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
