Longevity Has Been Resolved
Placer County and PPEO have come to an agreement on the Longevity language in the current MOU. A side letter to the MOU was approved by CallPERS on October 31, 2019. The side letter outlines three tiers for longevity pay for current permanent employees.
Longevity Pay A: Applies to permanent employees who were already receiving longevity pay on or before October 31, 2019. These employees will continue to receive the 5% increase in pay.
Longevity Pay B: Applies to permanent employees hired on or before October 31, 2019 who have not yet qualified for longevity. These employees will receive a 2% increase upon completion of 10 years of continuous service and an additional 3% upon completion of 15 years of continuous service.
Employees hired after October 31, 2019 are not eligible for longevity pay.
Legal Defense Fund
PPEO realizes some public safety staff may want to purchase/participate in Legal Defense Fund protections as an assurance, should the need arise. This year, the PPEO Board heard a compelling presentation from the Fraternal Order of Police Northern California Lodge 019 and would like to provide their contact information for public safety staff who would like to participate in a Legal Defense Fund. For more information on this organization, and to enroll in this benefit, please see the contact information below or visit the website at: http://www.sacprobation.org/fop-lodge-19
PPEO would like to help support Employee Engagement events throughout the county. If your department is holding an employee-centered event that fosters team building and has a positive impact on the employees attending, we'd like to help! Please download the Employee Engagement Request For Funds form using the link below and email the completed form to PlacerPEO@gmail.com. You can also inter-office the form to any board member.
PPEO board meetings are open to all dues-paying members in good standing. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at 5:30 pm. We encourage our members to attend these meetings to stay abreast of union business and help guide the direction of our union into the future.
