It was announced today that the CHAMP program (safety patrol) will remain in place for the time being while they evaluate other methods to pay for the service, such as a corporate sponsorship. We have NOT been notified by DOT or the Office of Labor Relations of any official changes being made to the program or the members that are assigned to the Service Patrol.
We have again asked for more details from DOT and the Office of Labor Relations as they have it available. When we do receive any more information we will send out further notice.
Below please find the link to today’s NBC 30 article about this matter:
Wishing everyone a safe and healthy Fourth of July weekend.
