MCEA’s newest Chapter #615, the Harford County Correctional Association (HCCA) scored a big win in the Harford County Council chambers. Council Bill 13-9 was introduced by Council President William Boniface at the request of Harford County Executive David Craig after meeting with a delegation of Chapter 615 officers and MCEA staff.

HCCA President, Rick Hampton, Vice President Sean Kahler and MCEA Labor Relations Specialist, Michael Keeney successfully lobbied the Harford County Council for significant pension enhancement reform for the correctional officers working at the Harford County Detention Center. The County Council passed the Bill in a 7-0 vote on March 19, 2013. The legislation provides for an enhancement of accrual for future service, an early retirement option after 20 years of eligible service, adjustments for accruals for military service and unused sick leave, redefines average compensation and provides adjustments for line of duty disability. MCEA extends heartfelt appreciation to the Honorable David Craig and the entire County Council.
