HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

On behalf of the entire Local 1014 Executive Board and our Team at the Alfred K. Whitehead Labor Center Union Hall we want to take a moment and give you a little bit of Union information and also wish you a wonderful and safe Saint Patrick's Day and remind you to be smart and safe in your celebrations.

PROTECT YOUR JOB!

Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385-461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century.....CLICK HERE FOR MORE

Today, Friday March 17th, The Irish and virtually every other person in the land will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day. As you celebrate St. Patrick's Day take a moment to prepare and protect lives and your job. If you are going to drink alcohol, remember line up a Designated Driver, get a cab, or get a room. Don't put your life or your job in jeopardy...be smart on the green day of the year.

On behalf of the LOCAL 1014 Executive Board – BE SAFE AND STAY INFORMED.

March 7, 2017 Election round-up

LOCAL 1014 ELECTION EFFORTS MAKE A DIFFERENCE AGAIN!

Tuesday March 7th Local 1014 put a mark on the City Council Races and Initiatives in the County of Los Angeles. Lending our endorsement and support has made the difference in so many contests and issues.

Measure D

While not quite the 2/3rds vote necessary to re-affirm the existing fire tax in Palos Verdes Estates, Local 1014 came very close to making the mark on Measure D. We moved the vote from 47% yes when we started to 60.48%. We battled very low voter turnout in this affluent mostly republican neighborhood. The turnout was a paltry 9% with a little over 2500 people voting. Next steps will include meeting with the Mayor and City Council to help them plan for an initiative in 2018 to fix this issue. Absent a ballot measure to put revenue back for Fire and Paramedic Services, there will be no money in the City Budget for Fire. Obviously this is not a situation that can exist in PVA, and we look forward to a fix, but for now we will ensure no staffing shortages or cuts and use of City reserve funds to pay their contract. We helped elect one the council members also heading forward.

Measure H

The highly published initiative to fund a plan to combat Homelessness in a comprehensive plan addressing mental health, substance abuse, jobs, housing, children’s services, homeless veterans and more in alliance with the City of Los Angeles passed narrowly. A 2/3 vote was needed and Local 1014 with our partners in the Board of Supervisors, namely Mark Ridley Thomas, helped put the vote in at 67.44%! We look forward to the effect it will have on our responses as well as being the right thing in addressing the issue.

Measure CC

Covina voters listened to Local 1014 and supported a reauthorization of a 6% utility user’s fee to fund essential city services including fire and police. While we only needed at majority vote, we garnered 70.22% with a decent voter turnout. The City was extremely appreciative and so were the Police Officers Association. Next steps will be to help the health of the Budget and examine whether PM Positions will be reauthorized in the future. Stay tuned and nice work on this one.

Measure S

LA Federation of Labor and our Labor Partners, in particular the Building Trades, banded together to fight Measure S. S was a blatant attack to undermine our success with Measure JJJ last election providing for Building Projects in Los Angeles City and County by imposing a 2 year moratorium on building in the areas where the projects were taking shape. We defeated Measure S soundly with 68.85% of the vote sending a message to the special interests who tried to get in the way of jobs and revenue for the city.

We also interviewed and gave the sought after Local 1014 Endorsement to select Candidates in Local City Elections. We interviewed many candidates and narrowed our picks down to those who support our issues and are good partners in the cities as well as valid candidates.

We worked hard for candidates in 11 contract cities this cycle to include the following cities:

AZUZA
BELLFOWER
COVINA
GARDENA
LA MIRADA
MONTEREY PARK
PALOS VERDES ESTATES
SAN DIMAS
SOUTH EL MONTE
SOUTH GATE
WEST HOLLYWOOD

Local 1014 endorsed 22 Candidates in these cities and we were successful in 18 of the 22 endorsements. That is an 82% effective rate of success on our work. We will continue to work hard to ensure the elected officials in our Contract Cities as well as the County are Firefighter Issue friendly and will be partners in good times and bad.

Thank you to all the Brothers and Sisters who came out to help in Palos Verdes Estates and the other Cities we worked in to get this done. Thank you to all members of Local 1014 for your continued support and solidarity that allows us to be powerful political influences in the areas of Los Angeles County we serve. It is critical to keep our funding, staffing, and wages hours and working conditions in place through collective bargaining and political action. Once again we should all be very proud of our hard work and collective efforts.

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and Local 1014 Executive Board

International Woman's Day

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

LOCAL 1014 IS PROUD TO HAVE CELEBRATED
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2017

“To help forge a better working world and more gender inclusive world was the theme of the observance this year. 

While there will be many forms to observing this day to help raise awareness of so many issues… Local 1014 would like to take the moment to recognize our Sisters who proudly serve the citizens of LA County.

Los Angeles County Fire Fighters IAFF Local 1014 represents many women in all ranks and positions serving in the LA County Fire Department.  Firefighters and Paramedics, Dispatchers, Fire Prevention Jobs, Forestry, FSA’s…both past and present.

As Local Union President I will not be shy nor run from recognizing the Local 1014 an Proud Union Sisters that I work for and work with on our job.  We have many great women serving in all of our positions.  Many Local 1014 members have daughters who are preparing and seeking a career in the Fire Service as well.  It is today that we not only take time to recognize our Sisters but also the fact that more can be done to attract and retain well qualified women firefighter and paramedic and fire personnel candidates.

Local 1014 has been a big part of the Women’s Commission within the California Fire Fighter Joint Apprentice Committee, with our own Kelly Abadie a member of the committee.  CFF JAC is dedicated to recruitment and mentoring in a way to attract the top women in the state who desire to be professional firefighters.

A reality is we can and must do better in our quest to attract the best women in the state and actually hire them to work for LA County Fire!  The national average percentage of women working in the fire service is between 4% and 7% regionally.  LA County Fire is less than 1% and we have been for some time due to our hiring practices.  We simply can and must do better.  The military, police departments, the building trades have all done better and are in the 12-21 % levels of women serving.  If we don’t tackle this project, then someone else will for us.

We look forward to working with our own Local 1014 Members who are women serving, and the CFFJAC to ensure that we can recruit and hire the best and most qualified women in the state.  We can do better.

Once again, today we recognize the outstanding Women of Local 1014 and of Los Angeles County Fire Department for your service and achievement as professionals in the fire service world.  

In Solidarity,

Dave Gillotte 

President IAFF Local 1014
