YONKERS, NY — May 8, 2021 — Arbitrator Jay M. Siegel. Esq. presided over the issue of whether the City of Yonkers violated Article 31 (Maintenance of Benefits) defined in Appendix C of the Collective Bargaining Agreement by excluding night differential, check-in pay, and holiday pay for bargaining unit members who retired on or after December 9, 2015 who were granted performance of duty or accidental debility retirements or may be granted performance or accidental disability retirements on or after December 9, 2015.

The decision by Arbitrator Siegel resulted in the merits of the grievances  against the City of Yonkers to be awarded to the Fire Department on Thursday, May 6th, 2021. The CoY has thereby been ordered to cease and desist from the action of not including night differential, check-in pay and holiday pay from General Municipal Law (GML207-a) for those Firefighters granted performance of duty or disability benefits that retired on or after December 9, 2015.

  1. Speaking of contracts, someone should ask Latimer, how the county spent $5.5 million on “Outside”attorneys for the Rye Playland contract.
    Who are these “outside” Attorneys? how were they chosen? and how come the County attorneys don’t know contract law???

    No wonder taxes are so high!!!!!

  2. This bumbling, inept administration, particularly the law department, couldn’t win a grievance on its best day. They are a bunch of clowns who get taken apart by the unions in every hearing, no matter how winnable it is for them.

  3. Just wondering how many court cases the city lost by trying to violate contracts? I don’t think they have won any. It has to be quite a few. How much taxpayer money has it cost? 10 million? 20 million? 50million? Outside attorneys cost quite a bit. What personal vendetta is at play here?
