20.1 Longevity. Effective July 1, 2005, employees will receive longevity pay in accordance with the following schedule:
20.2 FTO Assignments. Field Training Officers (FTOs) will receive a three (3) step increase for hours worked performing FTO responsibilities. When assigning FTOs, the Department will make a request for volunteers. If there are no volunteers, the Department will assign an FTO. The Department will make a good faith effort to equalize situations where employees are mandated to perform FTO responsibilities, unless the Department determines that a particular assignment will benefit the training needs of the trainee.
20.3 The K-9 Officer shall receive a two percent (2%) premium (the current K-9 MOU will continue through the term of this Agreement).
20.4 Certified instructors assigned to provide training, other than an FTO assignment, will receive a seven and a half percent (7.5%) premium for the entire day if they spend at least four (4) hours of their shift providing training.
20.5 The Department will provide parking for employees when they are required to work at football games.
20.6 Working Out of Classification. Whenever an employee is assigned the principal duties and responsibilities of an employee in a higher classification for a single shift or greater period of time, that employee shall be paid three (3) steps above his/her present salary, or shall receive the salary at the bottom of the range for the classification in which s/he is working, whichever is greater, for all such time worked.
20.7 Multilingual/Sign Language/Braille Premium Pay. Whenever a classified position has a bona fide requirement for regular use of competent skills in more than one (1) language, and/or sign language (ASL), and/or Braille, as identified by the Chief, the employee shall receive premium pay of two (2) steps above the level normally assigned for that position, except for those instances where the position is allocated to a class that specifies these skills.
