Negotiations update August 1, 2015

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3100 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

Negotiations update August 1, 2015

Negotiations between the County and Local 1014 have ceased as of this week. Local 1014 Bargaining Co-Chairs Dave Morse and Andy Doyle along with members of the Executive Board have been at the table every week as we presented a fair proposal that take into account the Fire Department Budget and the needs and interests of our membership. While the general salary movement items have been moved to acceptable numbers for all of public safety, Local 1014 has presented a number of other items that need to be addressed particularly for newer Firefighters and Fire Suppression Aids. We have a few other small items that we have been able to get agreement on in concept, but more work needs to be done to arrive at a fair contract.

We have ceased bargaining at the table in large part due to the fact the County and the County Fire Department brought very inaccurate numbers regarding our proposal items in an attempt to over exaggerate the impact of the items we presented. The County and the Fire Department did not have any capture of the budget numbers and Local 1014 had to actually present and educate the County representatives and the County Fire representative on correct numbers, and in the end with good numbers they simply defaulted to “we’re just not interested”. The Department and the County have disrespected the issues and the importance of the issues we moved forward in our proposals.

We will not be meeting at the table and we will be soliciting a better understanding of the issues and the cost factors with both the CEO and the Fire Chief. We will also be continuing to solicit the Fire Chief embrace of the key issues we have presented, and while we have early indication of support we do not have actions from either the Fire Chief or the CEO to help get this table to a finish. We will work hard off table in the coming weeks to move details to a place where the table can reconvene if we can agree on the authority and expertise that is needed at the table for fair bargaining. While we do not seek to go to Impasse immediately nor do we seek the powerful and unified voice of 3200 Local 1014 members, know that we are willing to go to Impasse and if needed will call on you for that collective voice.

As you may have heard, some of the Public Safety Unions have settled their contracts including PPOA (LASD Sargent's and above) and LACOLA (Lifeguards) and Probation, and we are pleased with the general salary movement and it is consistent with the general salary movement all of public safety worked to establish. They also addressed smaller issues for their members and they are to be congratulated on their contract tentative agreements. However the two largest public safety Unions remain unsettled; ALADS – representing all Deputy’s, and Local 1014. That’s right, Sheriffs and Firefighters remain out.

We will keep you informed and updated regularly as we enter into this very intense time as we try to get a fair deal to the table….as always we will not agree to anything other than a fair deal.

In Solidarity,

Local 1014 Executive Board

Release of information

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3100 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel



Yesterday, the Department and the County decided to release records to the LA Times related to the recent Auditor-Controller’s Report regarding the past FF Exam. The Department and the County gave no notice to Local 1014 or the employees of this Department that may be affected.  We want to inform our membership of this action and the potential impact to our personal and professional lives, a courtesy the Department and the County did not afford the employees. 

The Department and the County have released e-mails and records relating to the County Auditor-Controller Report on the past Firefighter Exam process.  These records include names / ranks / positions of employees including managers and chiefs and staff.  Specifically employees involved in any aspect of the past FF exam process and candidate selection process and any employees who took part in mock oral interviews and training on County property as described in the Auditor-Controller report.

The Union has opposed this action and cited the confidentiality of the information especially as we represent members in due process procedures. It is important to note the County and the Department gave no opportunity to respond to their actions before the unilateral decision to release these records.

We wanted the membership to be aware of this action taken by the Department and the County.  It is readily apparent to our membership and the public we serve that the Auditor-Controller’s Report is seriously flawed and out of context.  It is also clear that the “Yellow-Journalism” of the LA Times may continue with little regard for the truth and they will write what they want despite the facts at hand and the full story.    

We therefore recommend to all members to give “NO COMMENT” to the press on this item and if contacted by the Department regarding any of these items, as always, call your Union for representation IMMEDIATELY.

We will continue to push forward as a remarkable family of the most well respected, well trained, hard-working men and women of Local 1014!  Local 1014 members are a diverse group of professional firefighters, paramedics and fire personnel who bring passionate and dedicated service to our communities.   Be proud and unwavering with pride in your work and our Department and our Members.  “TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE”

Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel


The 12th Annual Los Angeles County, Local 1014 Fill the Boot raised an incredible $247,489, bringing the twelve year total to $3,681,575. The 3 day “on duty” event held July 9th, 10th, and 11th brought out the brave men and woman of Local 1014 to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger. Thank you for your time, efforts, and commitment for the MDA families.

Once again, 1014 Vice President, Dave Lopez, coordinated the event with the cooperation andfull support of Chief Osby to ensure a safe and profitable drive, “We want to take care of the MDA families anyway we can. Every year, I am proud of what our men and women accomplish in support of MDA.”

Battalion 8 came in with the most dollars raised at $24,956. Battalion 9 was close behind at $19,729, closely trailed by Battalion 22 with $19,096. Great job, Local 1014.

We would like to recognize and give a special thanks to some of the members and LA County Fire leadership that went above and beyond to help make the Fill the Boot event a success.

Thank you for your dedication and support!

Dependent Eligibility Verification (DEV)

Wednesday July 15th is the last day to submit!

Don't let your dependents get dropped from the plan.

As you know the County of Los Angeles is doing a Dependent Eligibility Verification Audit (DEV). We have told the county we are not opposed to the audit but we are very opposed to the process which includes, but is not limited to, the request for documents by the county (and 3rd party vendor). These documents are not required under the Choices Summary Plan Description to enroll a dependent. A negotiated item.

We are at the point, and have been informing everyone in the last few weeks, that you need to turn the required paperwork in or you run the risk of your dependents being dropped from the plan. This includes medical and dental insurance.

We will deal with the document request after the 15th of July, the deadline for submission.

As a reminder this DOES NOT affect retired personnel as well as those who do not have dependents. If you have not received any paperwork you can call the following number:

HMS Dependent Verification
Monday – Friday, 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.
(866) 365-7285

Any questions please call or email Andy Doyle (562) 307-7045.
