Watch Video > Minor changes to indexing and fixing some typos. That’s what Brigantine City Manager Ed Stinson claims is the glitch keeping the latest Police Union agreement from being signed.
On Wed JAN 3, the Brigantine City Council meeting publicly revealed that the so-called Brigantine Police contract announced on Sept. 2, 2015 never really happened. This fact was uncovered when reporters for BrigantineNOW requested the alleged document using OPRA; the Open Public Records Act.
Brigantine City Manager Stinson also pointed a finger at his recent back surgery. Stinson claims recovery from the medical procedure took critical public union negotiations ‘off his radar’.
Public Union Contract in Brigantine Not Valid.
During the council meeting, Stinson noted that he foresees no substantial changes to agreement voted on by Council back in Sept 2015. The new contract should be signed, presumably over the next few days. Stinson will meet with the Brigantine Police Union (PBA) on Friday.
