I was pleased to hear from some of you that you received the retroactive payments in your last paycheck. There seems to be some confusion about whether or not it was coming in the form of one check or two. I was informed that you would get one payment, and was not told it would come in more than one payment. I will check again with the City and get back to you as soon as they respond to my question.
Take care and we will continue to work on your behalf. Together we will win.
