The town also sought to eliminate accrued sick leave from year to year up to a max of 960 hours rather than 1,440 hours. The town said all other bargaining units are capped at 960 hours, but the union argued firefighters work longer shifts and this would result in fewer sick days for the group. The panel rejected this proposal.
The town asked to eliminate current language in the contract regarding educational incentives, to state instead that new employees and current ones who are not eligible to receive compensation for a degree should receive stipends ranging from about $2,100 to $8,400 to save the town money, rather than salary percentages Burberry Plaid Iphone 6 Case

Regarding personnel reduction, the town asked for a change in the procedure of layoffs to be on rank rather than seniority. Town Manager Jodi Ross clarified many paramedics on staff are new to the department so planning layoffs based on seniority would lead to an elimination of the paramedic staff. The panel ruled the town and union have 30 days to work out the contract language to work around that Omega Seamaster 007 Leather Strap predicament, and say the parties may return to the JLMC group for assistance in the next 60 days.
non occupational sick leave language, asking employees to accrue 96 hours of sick time per year rather than 144 hours. The town argued this would equal the same figure other town employees receive and since June 15, 2013, firefighters have been paid $114,056 in sick leave, which is the equivalent of 3.41 percent of the total fire operating budget. The panel rejected this proposal.
wage increases and stipends for fiscal years 2012, 2013, and 2014, but the town and the Local 3126 collective bargaining unit also went back and forth over other parameters within the bargaining unit's contract. The JLMC panel rejected most of the proposals, according to 26 pages released by the town outlining the arbitration proceedings. Here's what they discussed:
ranging from 5 percent to 12.5 percent. The union argued this would place them further behind police officers, and the panel rejected the proposal.
The union asked for vacation accrual to mirror the police patrolmen's contract so they would receive 240 hours after 15 years, as opposed to 240 hours after 20 years, and to increase that total to 280 hours after 20 years. The town said this proposal would increase their vacation time pay out by 546 hours, which would increase overtime costs by $19,929, almost the equivalent of a 1 percent total base wage increase. The panel rejected this proposal.
