Section 1. The Council finds:
1. Representatives of the City and the Portland Police Commanding Officers Association (PPCOA) have signed a Memorandum of Agreement that modifies the terms of Article 33, Section a, of the LaborAgreement . This modification extends the amount of Executive Leave (e-leave) that may be granted by the Chief of police to members of the PPCOA bargaining unit. This Memorandum of Agreement is effective upon endorsement by City Council.
2. Members of the PPCOA bargaining unit are subject to being constructively “on call” owing to their rank and scope of responsibility. Yet, these employees do not receive any premium similar to “on call” or “pager” pay as it is known in the LaborAgreement with the Portland Police Association (PPA). The extension of the additional e-leave that may be granted by the Chief of Police for members of the PPCOA is being proposed as a means to provide equitable compensation in lieu of “on call” or “pager” pay.
3. This Memorandum of Agreement
modifies Article 33, Section a, of the LaborAgreement
. All other terms and conditions shall remain as provided in the 2006-2010 LaborAgreement
. A copy of the Memorandum of Agreement
is attached as Exhibit A
NOW, THEREFORE, the Council directs:
a. That the Mayor and Auditor are hereby authorized to execute a Memorandum of Agreement
to modify Article 33, Section a, of the Labor Agreement
between the City and the PPCOA in accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement
attached as Exhibit A
b. This ordinance is a binding City policy.
Section 2. The Council declares that an emergency exists because delay would unnecessarily delay the orderly implementation of the provisions of the labor agreement; therefore, this ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage by the Council.
Ordinance No. 180427, passed by City Council and effective September 6, 2006.
