FOP 93 Endorses Chief John Mina for Sheriff of Orange County

Fraternal Order of Police – Lodge 93 and Fraternal Order of Police District 7 Endorses Chief John Mina for Sheriff

FOP 93 President, Jeff Stinson, says “Chief Mina is clearly the most qualified candidate and we endorse him to be the next Orange County Sheriff.”   

(ORLANDO, Fla.) – Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #93, President Jeff Stinson announced that Chief John Mina has been endorsed by FOP Lodge #93.  Chief Mina was selected after careful consideration by the FOP District 7 committee, a review of both candidate’s abilities and experience, and a Town Hall meeting.  Chief John Mina was selected because of his background, law enforcement experience, executive leadership, and his working relationship with the FOP.  President Stinson said, “It is no coincidence that Chief Mina was endorsed by all of the Mayors in Orange County, most large organizations, and political entities.  We all see the same qualities: experience, leadership, and a battle-tested candidate who can handle the demands of being the Orange County Sheriff.” 

Also, Fraternal Order of Police, District 7 (Central Florida), has jointly endorsed Chief John Mina in his bid to become the next Sheriff of Orange County (FL).  Chief John Mina has gained the endorsements of the three FOP lodges in Orange County: Lodge 93 – Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Lodge 25 – Orlando Police Department, and Lodge 86 – Orange County Corrections Department.    

Fraternal Order of Police - District 7 - represents 24 lodges in 10 counties in Florida.  The FOP Lodges included are those in the counties of Brevard, Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Sumter, and Volusia counties.  FOP Lodge 93 represents over 1,000 Deputies, Corporals, and Sergeants within the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.  This is the most coveted and largest endorsement by any law enforcement labor union in Central Florida.  FOP Lodge 93  and District 7 FOP Lodges are proud to endorse Chief John Mina and wish him success in the upcoming election.  

Contract Ratification Vote - New Collective Bargaining Agreement

UPDATE: The FOP and OCSO CBA was overwhelmingly approved by ratification vote and was signed by both parties.  We have a new contract from 2017-2019.  Thank you to all who voted and participated in the process.  The wage increases will be on the paycheck on October 13, 2017.

The Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #93 and the Orange County Sheriff's Office have reached an agreement on a new, two-year contract for 2017-19.  This new contract agreement includes the largest wage increases in the history of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.  

We will be voting on whether to ratify the contract on September 19th and 20th.  The voting locations are as follows:

  • Sector 1 from 1000-2000 hours
  • Sector 2 from 1000-2000 hours 
  • Sector 5 from 1000-2000 hours 
  • Courthouse from 0900-1700 hours
  • Central Operations Complex from 1000-2000 hours

If the contract is ratified, the wage increases would be effective on the first paycheck in October 2017.  Deputies and Court Security Deputies will vote on ratification on the contract as one bargaining unit.  Corporals and Sergeants will vote on ratification as one bargaining unit.  

We believe this contract is immensely better than the last contract.  We are hopeful that all bargaining unit members will vote YES and ratify this collective bargaining agreement.

Below are the highlights of the agreement, some articles were minor word changes and/or Present Contract Language only:
