What's New at IAFF 1014
Friday Update 12-7-18

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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


Brothers and Sisters,  

Today your Local 1014 Executive Board continued negotiations with the County on our contract late into the evening. We made significant progress today fighting for issues in general salary and special bonus items for all of our members.  We meet again next week after the County finishes costing out the remaining items we have on the table. We are not going to rest until every last dime is bargained for and secured in a fair contract. We will have a more comprehensive update on this next week.  

There will be NO GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11th as we have both fringe benefit bargaining and Russ Fagan’s Flag Ceremony.  

On Tuesday, your Local 1014 President and Executive Board held our Executive Board meeting at the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors (LACBOS). Prior to the meeting, Local 1014 joined Los Angeles County Lifeguards Association (LACOLA) in voicing our support for the motion by LACBOS Chair Supervisor Janice Hahn and Supervisor Kathryn Barger to analyze our Los Angeles County Fire Department's current and future needs including infrastructure, equipment and staffing. 


Our needs as a department are changing and we need the resources to support these changes. Of the over 400,000 responses last year, over 80% of them were EMS calls. Call load and call complexity are increasing rapidly. While fires make up only 2% of our call load, the fires we are experiencing are more intense and longer in duration than ever before and are now combined with a yearlong fire season up and down the state. 

Since July 2018, we have had thousands of recalls for our members. We know this causes family stress, physical stress, and mental stress. Fatigue can also cause injuries and illness. As we saw in the Woolsey Fire, we need every single member of our department healthy and able in order to protect our County.

Your Local 1014 Executive Board is working hard and has set a goal of 4-person staffing on all of our apparatus. This study is the first step to getting the data we need to assess our current needs and plan for our future growth. We will have more on this initiative in the coming months but this was an exciting first step and a big win for our members as we work with our Board of Supervisors and County partners to better serve our communities. 

 In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board

Brothers and Sisters,  

Today Local 1014 Executive Board members and the Local 1014 Health Plan had the pleasure of welcoming our new recruits during Family Day at the LACoFD East County Training Center. Informing our new recruits and their families about the benefits of union membership and the excellent healthcare benefits offered through the Local 1014 Health Plan is one of the most important things we do to continue the tradition of strength through unity and solidarity. 


Once these new recruits graduate they will join our ranks, learn our profession, and help to relieve our understaffing and recall issues. We continue to push for a comprehensive and consistent hiring plan from the Department and the County that prepares for the future of our Department and our members. Additionally, Local 1014 Executive Board members continued Staffing Committee meetings this week. We made significant progress on our 7-day staffing issues. We also continue to work towards resolutions on promotions and entry level testing. We will have more on this soon as we schedule follow-up meetings next week for all these issues. 

Yesterday, your Local 1014 Executive Board continued contract negotiations with the County of Los Angeles. As you all know, this process has been grueling and exhausting for our Executive Board as we continue to fight for the best contract possible for our members. We have a follow-up negotiation meeting on Monday with the County’s negotiations team to continue to hammer out the final details of our contract. In addition, today we have a meeting with the CEO regarding our fringe benefit negotiations with the County Coalition of Unions (CCU). As we continue negotiations on both fronts, we are fighting for every dollar. Look for more information on the contract and staffing next week as we look to close out the year with a contract that reflects the value of our members and their hard work and sacrifice for our communities.  

 In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board

We are fighting for every dollar and we will not leave money on the table. 

Local 1014 is one of the strongest most influential labor unions in the nation and with our newly elected Executive Board we will continue to fight on behalf of our members. Thank you to all and let us move forward 1014 Strong!

Happy Thanksgiving


Brothers and Sisters,

As we gather with our families to celebrate this Thanksgiving, many of us after spending more than a week away from our families due to the Woolsey Fire, we pause to reflect on all that we are grateful for this holiday. 

We are thankful for you, our members, and for the passion and dedication you bring to the job each and every day as you serve the residents of Los Angeles County. We work for one of the greatest fire service agencies in the world and that's because of the men and women who make it happen each and every day. Last week, we witnessed so many acts of bravery and heroism by each one of our members and Firefighters throughout the State as we battled an unprecedented firestorm throughout California. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims from the Woolsey and Camp Fires, and their families this holiday. If you would like to donate to the relief effort for victims please visit the California Fire Foundation website.

We also had nearly 70 Firefighters throughout California lose their homes as they were fighting on the fire line. The IAFF Disaster Relief Fund provides immediate financial assistance to help these displaced Firefighters and their families while they continue to serve the surrounding communities. If you would like to help, please donate today.

It is an honor to serve and protect the citizens of Los Angeles County and we will always be grateful for the strong unity we have in Local 1014. We hope that this holiday weekend, you enjoy your families, the bounty of food at your table, and your many blessings.  

On behalf of the dedicated members of Los Angeles County Firefighters Local 1014, we would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and send special thoughts and prayers to those serving in our military abroad and to those serving in our fire stations, dispatch centers and in the community this holiday. 

 In Solidarity

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
