Scranton (PA) Firefighters and Police Due Back Pay

More than a dozen Scranton police officers and firefighters due back pay under the $21 million arbitration ruling will receive more than $90,000, including five employees owed more than $100,000 each, a review of data shows, reports The Times-Tribune.

On average, firefighters are due $62,747, while police officers are owed $49,854, according to calculations made in August by an auditor hired by the city and police and fire unions to determine the back pay award. Individual amounts vary greatly among the employees in both departments dependent upon individual circumstances, but most are owed roughly $50,000 to $70,000.

On the high end, acting Police Chief Carl Graziano tops the list, owed $124,589 as of August. He’s followed by four other police officers: Albert Leoncini, who is owed $120,492; David Mitchell, $109,581, Leonard Namiotka, $104,930 and Timothy Harding, $100,055.
