There is nothing worse than a liar and a thief and when some forced to resign retread is imported by the city manager and within two weeks of starting here lies to all the employees and then methodically tries to disenfranchise virtually all the older long term employees it results in the following:
Police Benevolent Association

To: Mr. David Harden
Port Orange City Manager
Reference: Demand for Impact Collective Bargaining
As General Counsel of Coastal Florida PBA/PEA, it has come to my attention that the Public Utilities Director, Andrew Neff, intends to institute a massive reorganization that would include an elimination of the maintenance department. It is also my understanding that as proposed, the reorganization would have a disproportionately large impact on the older employees of the city.
While the city may have a right to reorganize the structure of the city’s departments, the city does have an obligation under Florida Statutes chapter 447 to engage Coastal Florida Public Employees Association in collective bargaining over the impact of those changes on the wages or other working conditions of the bargaining unit members. This must happen before enacting any such reorganization.
If the city does intend to enact a reorganization that would impact the members’ working conditions, please provide the details of the proposals and some dates the city would be available to begin collective bargaining over the impact of the proposed changes.
