At the last council meeting there was an issue on the agenda that excluded pensions from certain calculations. I don't know how they are calculated but I know there is a difference. Also when the contracts were ratified at the meetings since January some contracts contained nonpensionable bonuses. They called them cash backs. Fire had them and somebody else as well. I can't remember whom.<quoted text> If you could define "pensionable hours" and or give examples of current pension formulas used to calculate any Chico firefighter's pension, it would eliminate speculation. If you're not privy to those formulas please don't speculate.
Not all pay is pensionable. That's what I was saying. I do not know or pretend to understand these details.
And the chiefs are not time management specialists with special training. That's my point. The other union they belong to is public safety management.
