I believe what his point is is that if you keep your car and agree to the additional fees, this is still going to be viewed as the "privilege" of a take home car by the administration and that you will still be expected to perform these types of tasks i.e. late runs, stranded motorists, picking up runs on your way to roll call without compensation as part of said "privilege". I think he's right when he says that the city will fight you tooth and nail and refuse any O.T. that they see as excessive or inappropriate. You will probably have a stronger case if you do not agree to the added fees and give up your take home. Then off set the cost of your POV with overtime. Thats what I plan to do. I will no longer give the one minute of my time but I have every intention of giving up my car if the labor board rules against us.

As soon as it is refused then you file a grievance. They get enough of these and we should see some results. Just remember that the whole Corrections OT thing wasn't their new Chief being magnanimous, he had already had about 200 grievances filed against him and knew it was a losing battle. Stay the course!
