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.

We are drawing closer to the 18th Annual MAP Awards Banquet! This year, the banquet will be held on Saturday January 28th, 2017 from 5:30pm-12am at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland. The Italian Heritage Center is located at 40 Westland Ave. in Portland off of Outer Congress Street.

The schedule for the Awards banquet is as follows;

5:30-6:30pm Social Hour

6:30-7:30pm Dinner

7:30-9:00pm Awards Presentations

9:00-Close Entertainment

The most important part of the evening is the recognition of our fellow members who represent their departments, MAP and the profession with outstanding performance in their duties. As awards are based on merit and nominations from the membership, it is important for ALL local units to participate and speak up on behalf of their fellow brothers and sisters.

Attached is the list of the award categories for the banquet. All nominations MUST BE IN WRITING AND RECEIVED ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 4th2016. Nominations will be accepted for all categories EXCEPT; the William B. Troubh Leadership Award which is selected by special committee on behalf of MAP.

***Any nominations received after the 4th WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Please take the time to copy, distribute and post this notice and award categories for all your members and encourage their participation.***

Nominations for awards must include the officer’s/recipient’s name, department and supporting information to be considered. We will then notify local presidents and the officer making the nomination as to the status of the nomination after the selection process has been completed.

In your nomination indicate whether or not the award will be a surprise. It will be the responsibility of the nominating local to make sure the award winner comes to the banquet as well as notifying their chief to invite them as well. Take the time to nominate a member as many times our work goes unnoticed by administration and the public.

Although there is no cost to individual MAP members and their 1 guest to attend the event, we require a headcount of those attending, as we are charged per plate. Please do not sign up to attend unless you are committed to coming to the banquet: If you are not sure, DON’T SIGN UP.

We are in the process of reserving a room rate at the Comfort Inn located at 90 Maine Mall Road in South Portland and will update you on the final confirmation of rate(s) and shuttle service.

As in our previous banquets, we are again conducting a raffle of items to benefit the MAP Charities Fund. If your local would like to donate an item please contact me at the office and let me know prior to the banquet.

The attached sign up sheet should be posted so that all those interested can have the opportunity to consider attending. The deadline for unit headcounts will be Friday JANUARY 20th, 2017.

Nominations can be mailed to:

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!
