Looks like the rumors were true once again:
There's the list of 13 "merit" picks. The Department is short nearly 80 sergeants as we write and due to the recent win by the Sergeant Union over the "55 and Free Medical Care" issue, will be short another 80 or so by May of 2016 when the benefit runs out and isn't renewed. But McCan'tFollowTheRules is going to make these 13 out-of-order picks and give them major seniority over anyone who earned it.
Supposedly, the FOP has filed for an injunction and McMoron has said he doesn't have to follow the rules. Just to help everyone follow along, these are from the Human Resources website:
Section A states quite clearly, "...of each round of promotions," and Section 12 says "If Merit Selection is used, CPD shall fill no more than 30% of the recognized career service vacancies....in each round of promotions." Those are the city's criteria and have been for years - past practice.
Last we checked, 100% is a bit more than 30%, even to someone from New York.
Garry needs to be gone if he can't understand the plain language of the process.
