Mr. Schless said the three main issues discussed Tuesday were the policemen's demands for reduction of their work week to 35 hours, a provision for less seniority for men on foot patrols and elimination of non-police duties. .' . The FPBA, accoraing to Mr. Schless. is seeking elimination of non-police duties , such as emptying waste baskets on Sundays! and holidays, non-emergency transfers in police ambulances, shovelling snow and changing streetlight bulbs when the public wonts emmoyees are nui un uutj. Police now are on the second' vear of a two year contract un der which they received increases of $750 each year or a total of $1,500 for the two year period with provisions for a reopener clause for fringe oenents.

The FPBA wants factfinding on three unresolved issues. Mr. Schless said yesterday the town is going into factfinding on all the points "since an intelli gent evaluation 01 one pan 01 the contract cannot di without consideration of benefits." The assistant town counsel noted also that even without the three controversial points the po lice are getting an 11 per cent increase. 1 Disputing charges by the FP BA that the town did not reply letter from them, Mr. Schless said, he contacted their James F.

Mr. Schleiss yesterday explain ed he could not agree to having third party write the police contract and thereby effect the mill rate of the town. He charged that the association is attempting to use outside sources, such as journalism and factfinding, and not accept the package of items the town offered.
