MOU22 Overpayment Issue

Recently MOU22 members received letters regarding their salary issues. Your COA is working to provide our members your employee rights to make informed decisions on this matter. As stated before, State Law prohibits the employer from garnishing wages without consent. The city is required to provide a full accounting of your salary calculations. The Fire Chief has granted a 30-day extension so that COA can conduct additional fact-finding.

Next Steps

  • The COA will seek legal counsel from subject matter experts to ensure that we provide our members a comprehensive overview of your rights as they relate to the alleged overpayments and guidelines/options that you can exercise as an employee.

  • The COA will convene a General Membership Meeting to provide updates and also discuss your concerns or questions.

  • The COA will continue to work collaboratively with the Fire Chief and his staff as we work towards resolving this matter.
