Brothers and Sisters:

I would like to thank every one of our members, family and friends for participating at this year's Annual EMS Picnic that was held on Sunday August 28, 2016 at Flushing Meadows Park in Queens. It was a beautiful day for our children to have fun while we socialized with our co­workers and friends. I would also like to thank all the volunteers who helped make this event happen. Without your support, it would have been impossible to have such a successful event.

The Union has chosen Fort Totten in Bayside Queens to hold next year's Annual EMS Picnic. We also hope to negotiate the use of the swimming pool.

Winners of the Honorary Fire Chiefs Scholarships were Ruthie Mack and Vanessa Ocasio. Good luck with your academic endeavors moving forward.

In Solidarity,

Israel Miranda

Member Update


Local 2507 members will be receiving a 4% raise in base salary plus retro monies for the period of 03/06/15 to 08/06/16. Payments of the retro money will be 1.5% from 03/06/15 to 03/05/16 plus 4% from 03/06/16 to 08/06/16. To simplify the calculation of your retro, go to your ESS site (they should have a breakdown on there already) and determine what your gross earnings were for those periods. Then simply add $150 per $10,000 earned for the first period, then $400 per $10,000 earned for the second. Add that together, and you will have a very close approximation of what you should have been paid.

The three 1% retro's for years 2012-2014 were deferred to 10/2017. This payment was converted to a longevity payment for all current and future employees who complete three years of service to the sum of $1,171.00 payable every year for the rest of their career.

If you do not receive these reimbursements, or you feel that the City's calculations are incorrect, please file a payroll inquiry at your station, make a copy, and contact the union office (718) 371-0310 with the particulars.

Also: The $1,000.00 sign on bonus will be paid on 10/07/16, but unfortunately, only to members who were on payroll on the date of contract ratification, 07/14/16.

In Solidarity,
Donald Faeth
