MICHIGAN ASSOCIATION OF POLICE IMPLEMENTS 'BUY BIG THREE' BONUS INCENTIVE PLAN

 MICHIGAN ASSOCIATION OF POLICE IMPLEMENTS 'BUY BIG THREE'
 BONUS INCENTIVE PLAN
 SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Michigan Association of Police (MAP), which officially represents some 2,500 of its own members at the bargaining table, has begun negotiating on behalf of the nation's economy -- particularly the American auto industry.
 MAP Executive Director Fred Timpner announced today that the union will seek to include in all local association contracts a provision that employers pay a one-time-only 3-percent (of base wage) cash bonus to any MAP member who purchases a General Motors, Ford or Chrysler vehicle.
 "This plan is the result of many months of consideration as to what we might do as an organization to help stimulate the economy," Timpner said. "We determined that it is a logical and promising approach because financial health at both the national and local levels is profoundly affected by the condition of the American automobile industry.
 "We have many associations whose members are directly impacted by Big Three auto company sales. Pontiac is a prime example. It is a 'car town' in the classic sense and the local economy is severely depressed. MAP represents Pontiac's police officers, both patrol and command, and the city's ability to properly compensate these officers is largely dependent on the local economic situation."
 Timpner said the 3-percent bonus proposal will be a standing element of every new round of contract bargaining that MAP associations enter as their prior agreements expire. He said MAP harbors no illusions that its new bargaining policy will, in and of itself, remedy the nation's economic woes, but pointed out that the current recession was not caused by any single influence.
 "MAP is taking a step that can help a little," he said. "If many others join in to support the purchase of GM, Ford and Chrysler cars, we're talking about concerted action that will help a lot. The idea is to spark positive momentum that, ultimately, will benefit everyone. That is our goal."
