LAC Fallen Firefighter Memorial April 21st, 2018

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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


We often use these words to speak about our BROTHERS and SISTERS who have fallen in the line of duty.

I am asking OUR membership to do more than just speak these words on this Saturday, April 21, 2018.

I am asking for the membership, as a FAMILY, to show support for the memories of our fallen, and for the families of the fallen who will join us at the Los Angeles County Fire Department Memorial Ceremony.

At 10 am this Saturday we will be honoring all the names on the wall of honor across from the P. Michael Freeman building (Command and Control).

PLEASE take time to come up and HONOR our fallen.

CAPTAINS I ask you to put this on your station clipboards where the programs for these memorial services no doubt are close by.  At line-up review this and EA-q76 (attached) and get commitments from your crews AND yourselves to attend the solemn ceremony Saturday.

CHIEFS I ask for your commitment to attend as well.

If you are not working on Saturday April 21st then the only place you belong is standing shoulder to shoulder with your brothers and sisters who make up the great membership of Local 1014.  We need to be there to help the families of our fallen to stand strong and show that those words you read earlier continue to ring in your ears.  You need to be there to show respect to all those names on the wall.  To many names!

"WE SHALL NEVER FORGET" – let that apply to this Saturday April 21st also.  Be there and show your support to the families of our fallen, the memories of our brothers and sisters as we always told them we would.

In solidarity,

Dave Gillotte,
President, Local 1014

An open letter to Chief Osby and the members of Local 1014

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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

An open letter to LA County Fire Chief Osby and the
membership of Local 1014
in regards to EA-168 dated March 30, 2018

April 6, 2018


Dear Chief Osby: 

In your memo EA-168 “Return to Work / Risk Management Re-Assignment” dated March 30, 2018, you stated a Civilian Division Chief “will provide a greater role in relation to the Department’s Return to Work mission.”

This letter is to inform you that we categorically REJECT your selection of civilian Cynthia Maluto to work in any capacity in the Return to Work Division and demand a new appointment to this critical position with the Department. We find her to be averse to any and all aspects of labor/management cooperation and to progressive workers compensation carve out principles. The unilateral decision to appoint her to an active role in Return to Work (RTW) is a direct attack on our Dispute Resolution Agreement (DRA) - Carve Out Agreement. 

As you know, under State law our DRA is managed by a Labor Management Voting Committee of 6 individuals, 3 people appointed by the Union and 3 people appointed by the Department to ensure a balanced voice.  It is at this table that all changes to any aspect directly and indirectly affecting the DRA carve out should be managed. It is essential that we maintain a balanced approach to the DRA and we are committed to working with you to correct this action and move toward a bilateral labor/management agreement regarding RTW. 

We would like to set up a meeting with you as soon as possible to discuss this critical issue. If the Department’s intent is to withdraw from the DRA carve out, where at least 80% of our members are being treated and claims are picked up in a timely manner, we deserve to know immediately. We feel strongly that the DRA system is significantly better than the state system which has delays to treatment in excess of 6 months for Firefighters.  We must do everything we can to maintain a balanced system that benefits our Firefighters and our Fire Service Personnel.

Additionally, in EA-168, you mentioned a “concerned Firefighter” letter and you committed to investigating the claims in the letter. While we know this was one case, all cases and all members are important to us. Your commitment to take care of Firefighters and Fire Service Personnel for their “injuries while performing their duties” should also include illnesses, and behavioral health issues both on duty and cumulatively. 

We are committed to addressing any needs or concerns of the Department and the Union membership. Moreover, we will be addressing this matter with the County Board of Supervisors. 

I look forward to your response and to working collaboratively with you to create a DRA and RTW system which focuses on taking care of the men and women of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Happy Birthday Cesar Chavez

Cesar Chavez (March 31, 1927 – April 23, 1993) was an American labor leader and civil rights activist who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association (later the United Farm Workers union, UFW) in 1962. Originally a Mexican American farm worker, Chavez became the best known Latino American civil rights activist, and was strongly promoted by the American labor movement, here

Some famous quotes from Cesar Chavez:

"Without a union, the people are always cheated, and they are so innocent".

"Preservation of one's own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures".

"You are never strong enough that you don't need help".

"The fight is never about grapes or lettuce. It is always about people".

"There is no substitute for hard work, 23 or 24 hours a day. And there is no substitute for patience and acceptance".
