FRIDAY UPDATE 
 

Brothers and Sisters, 

Last week, Local 1014 Executive Board members were in Sacramento fighting for critically important legislation to protect our members and improve our working conditions. 

Our Board was honored to represent our members and support the following legislation while in Sacramento: 

  • SB 542(Stern)-Gives first responders the occupational protections needed to treat Post Traumatic Stress Injuries (PTSI) and begin the healing process. The bill passed unanimously out of Assembly Insurance Committee and moves to Appropriations Committee next. 
  • SB 438 (Hertzberg)- This bill blocks the privatization of emergency dispatch to ensure patient care is the top priority and keeps 911 dispatch in the hands of sworn public safety officers. 
  • AB 1544(Gipson/Hertzberg)-This bill will help get vulnerable patients the care that they need, leading to better patient outcomes. AB1544 will help connect trusted firefighter-paramedics to the most vulnerable patients in our community and deliver vital services to ensure the highest quality care. The Community Paramedicine Bill passed the Senate Health Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

We would like to thank Sister Cerena Lewis, Fire Dispatcher, for joining us to lobby the California State Legislature on SB 438 and for providing moving testimony on behalf of our LA County Dispatchers and Dispatchers across California.  

We can never emphasize enough that political action is the cornerstone of protecting our members and their families while improving our wages, hours and working conditions. Los Angeles County is the largest county in the nation. It is critical that our voice and the voice of our members is heard by those who make life-changing decisions on our behalf. Your Executive Board is constantly working to ensure that we are protected at every level of government. 

We would like to thank the wonderful staff at California Professional Firefighters (CPF) for their effort to push these bills through the California Legislature. Special thank you to President Brian Rice for walking the halls with us to support these bills. 


 In Solidarity,


President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board

FRIDAY UPDATE 

Brothers and Sisters,

Today Local 1014 Executive Board members along with representatives from The 1014 Health Plan participated in a meet and greet with our new third-party administrator for workers' compensation for the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Sedgwick. The staff of Sedgwick was given live demonstrations of the types of incidents that Firefighters engage in every day. These demonstrations were accompanied by a description of what types of injuries often accompany these incidents. This first-hand experience is critical to their staff understanding how difficult this job is and how much we need every member of our team. 

As we all know, the workers' comp system has been a source of frustration for our members. With increased call loads and increasing severity of calls, we need to have every member of our Department healthy and able to get the treatment as soon as possible for work-related injuries. We hope that this new third-party administrator will be a partner in this process and in streamlining this for our members.  Local 1014 is committed to working with the Department and Sedgwick to get our members the treatment they need quickly and efficiently so they can get healthy and back to work. 

603/604 Negotiations 

Also today our Local 1014 Executive Board met with the County to continue negotiations on our 603/604 Bargaining Units, which includes Dispatchers, Forestry, Health HazMat and Fire Prevention.  We continue to fight for our members to receive a fair contract that reflects the increased workload and responsibility of these bargaining groups. We will update you as the negotiations process continues. 

Have a great week, be safe and take care of each other. 

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board

FRIDAY UPDATE 

Brothers and Sisters,

As many of you know, the Local 1014 Executive Board has been working exhaustively with the Department since 6/8/19 to ensure that our retro payment to our members is true, accurate, and complete. 

As we informed you previously, we found retro payment discrepancies that have not been addressed for our members, and they have been confirmed with the Auditor-Controller.  However, we are pleased to say that through communications with Human Resources and Payroll, efforts are in the works to fix it.  The Department has also acknowledged the underpayments.

Local 1014 would like to remind you that our Payroll section is on our side as our advocate, and we would like to acknowledge their efforts, willingness to work with us, and diligence in seeing this through to its conclusion. Except in some rare cases, all retro payments should be paid in full with an anticipated date of 7/30/19. In addition to these retro payments, don’t forget the 2019 COLA is in effect 7/1/2019, and you should see this on the 8/1/2019 warrant. 

Again, we would like to thank the Payroll Staff and Supervisors who have been working diligently and collaboratively with Local 1014 Board Members to reconcile the pay warrants and pay due to our members.  This is a lot of money and we are taking steps to ensure all monies have been received. 

Attached are the Department EA and Paycheck Calculator in case you missed them in the Department’s send. 

             

On behalf of your Los Angeles County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014 Executive Board, we wish you and your families a safe and healthy Fourth of July holiday weekend! 

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board

FRIDAY UPDATE 

Brothers and Sisters,

Local 1014 would like to remind the families of our LA County fallen Firefighters who have children entering college to apply for the Dan Terry Scholarship through the California Fire Foundation.

The deadline to submit applications for the Daniel A. Terry Scholarship program, which provides assistance to the children of firefighters who died in the line of duty, is Monday, July 1, 2019.

As a California Fire Foundation Board Member, Local 1014 was proud to sponsor the Foundation motion to expand this scholarship opportunity for all fallen firefighter families. The $2,000 scholarship will now be renewable annually for four years for a total of $8,000. We will continue to work to expand this scholarship opportunity for the children of our fallen brothers and sisters.

Named for California Professional Firefighters President-Emeritus Daniel A. Terry, the scholarship program was created to help the children of fallen firefighters realize their dreams of receiving a higher education. Since its inception, the program has awarded over $200,000 in scholarship funds to more than 100 students, including many children of Local 1014 members. The application for 2019 is available here.

For more information about the Daniel A. Terry Scholarship program, call (800) 890-3212. Be safe out there and take care of each other.

 In Solidarity,
President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
