Media reports indicated no severances were to be negotiated since no officers would lose employment.
CAO Miceli even noted in his Report to Council, “In the Proposal severance is not payable as all staff will be assumed by the WPS.”
The severance issue is well established in practice – compensation is provided for job loss so should not be applicable here.
Do our elected officials feel Amherstburg Police officers deserve compensation for maintaining employment?
Councillor Rick Fryer’s media comment should serve as a reminder, “We do have fiduciary responsibilities as a council.”
