Update

Since there were no candidates running in opposition for the Executive Board offices, there was no need for an election to be held. Therefore, the following Captains will serve as the Executive Board for the PBPA Captains Assn Unit 156C, for the term 2016-2018:

President: Capt. Ron Pontecore, Unit 126
Vice President: Capt. Michael Pigott, Unit 005
Treasurer: Capt. Kevin Anderson, Unit 126
Secretary: Capt. Laurel Bresnahan, Unit 001
Retiree Liaison: Ret. Capt. Frank Fagiano

Welcome to the newest member of our board, Capt. Michael Pigott, and thank you for stepping up and taking an active role in our Association.

As you all know, the Arbitrator found in our favor in the "Me Too" clause, granting our members to take advantage of paying $0 towards their medical, if they retire at the age of 55, for a period of 30 months after the date of ratification of our latest contract.

Being that our contract was ratified on 01 July 2015, our 30 month grace period expires on 01 February 2017. However, since we are bound by the May-Dec dates to retire, the last date that a Captain who is at least of the age of 55 can retire prior to paying his/her 2% of their annuity is 31 December 2016.

Also of importance, notification of the intention to retire must be received by the city at least 30 days prior to your retirement date. Therefore, notification to the City of your intent to retire must be made by 01 December 2016!

It was great to see all our members both active and retired at the last meeting. Sorry we missed the ones who could not make it, and we hope everything is well on your end. Let me close by wishing everyone a very Happy Holiday Season, and best wishes and good health for the New Year!
