The US Supreme Court renders ruling that changes the landscape of "Donning and Doffing"

U.S. Steel wins Supreme Court labor fight Mon, Jan 27 2014 By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court handed a victory to employers on Monday by ruling that a group of unionized steel workers does not have to be paid for the time they spend "donning and doffing" safety gear before and after their shifts.

Due to a change in Legislative scheduling on two important LEO Bills of which MAP is committed, the board finds it necessary to postpone the Annual Member meeting originally scheduled for March 22nd to TUESDAY, March 28th. Below is an amended Save the Date notice which is also attached as a word document to POST. Please make sure your Member Unit Representative is aware of the schedule change. Please disregard any prior notices. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you on the 28th.
Stay safe,
Paul Gaspar

Special Announcement

In October, MAP was proud to celebrate its 40th anniversary of being Maine's Voice of Law Enforcement. What started in 1975 as a small committed group of officers wanting a better voice in their working conditions as well as a fraternal concern for other officers, has become the state's largest police association, representing over 975 police officers and dispatchers from Houlton to Eliot. In those 40 years, MAP has held to its traditions of being a “By cop, for cop” organization and representing our member units on a one on one, exclusive basis. There are few other organizations anywhere that provides the level of service and contact that MAP has been proud to maintain for the last 40 years.

Thank you to our founders and members past and present who have made MAP the organization it is today. Stay safe!
