Local 1014 Friday update
July 20, 2018

This week, your Local 1014 Executive Board has continued the long and grueling negotiations process with the County of Los Angeles. We met with them multiple times over the past two weeks to grind out the final items on the successor MOU including specialty bonuses, additional MOU items and the establishment of a Behavioral Health Program, often meeting well into the night to get the best contract for our members. Next week, we are scheduled to continue negotiations. We will keep you updated as we progress towards a contract that takes care of all our members. Once a tentative agreement is reached, we will be sending it to our members for a ratification vote.

Yesterday, we celebrated the retirement of Brother John B. Tripp, “The Firefighter’s Chief,” who is retiring after 30+ years of service to the County of Los Angeles. The event was well attended by past members, legends of the LA County Fire Department as well as past 1014 Board Members.  Brother Tripp has remained a Local 1014 Brother his entire career and has always been a man of character dedicated to the fire service and our members. On behalf of our members, we thank Brother Tripp for his years of dedicated passion and mentorship.

Additionally, last weekend, our Executive Board also attended the grand opening of the Los Angeles County Fire Museum in Bellflower. More than three decades in the making, the museum is a multipurpose venue, housing antique fire engines and memorabilia as well as serving as an event venue. Special thanks to the Los Angeles County Fire Museum Association for preserving our history for future generations.

If you have the opportunity, please make the effort to visit and get a chance to see first-hand the rich history of the Los Angeles County Fire Department and its Firefighters. The museum is located at 16400 Bellflower Boulevard in Bellflower, for more information, visit www.lacountyfiremuseum.com.

As always, we will keep you updated as new information is available.

Local 1014 Friday update
July 13, 2018

As many of you know, the Los Angeles County Fire Department in addition to serving the 1 million residents of the unincorporated communities of Los Angeles County also contracts with nearly 60 cities within Los Angeles County and the Los Angeles region to provide Fire/Rescue/EMS services to over 3 million residents. While we do not seek out city contracts, when we have labor and management support within a city, we welcome cities and their Firefighters into the County family.

On July 10, the Redondo Beach City Council voted 4-1 to request a feasibility study and a proposal for Fire/Rescue/EMS services from the Los Angeles County Fire Department (meeting video here). While this is only a preliminary step in a long process, we look forward to working with our brothers and sisters at the Redondo Beach Firefighters Union as they look into joining the Los Angeles County family.

Your Local 1014 Executive Board has been diligently continuing the bargaining process with the County over a successor MOU. This has been a long and difficult negotiation with public safety labor unions coming together from across the County to ensure that we get the best contract for our members.

Today the Executive Board met with the County to fight for final items in our contract including specialty bonuses and additional MOU items. This was a long grueling process spanning several hours of negotiations. Earlier this week, Local 1014 together with Los Angeles County Lifeguard Association (LACoLA) met with members of the Board of Supervisors to ensure we have support for our members as we move forward with the negotiations process. We will be meeting with the Board of Supervisors and the County’s Chief Executive Officer again next week as we push for a tentative agreement quickly.

Our proposal includes funding for a union-run Behavioral Health Program. This will provide our members added confidentiality and will ensure best practices are in place. The program will be run in cooperation with the Department. With 1 in 5 Firefighters suffering from post-traumatic stress injuries, this is a top priority for our Executive Board.

Once a tentative agreement is reached, we will be sending it to our members for a ratification vote. The contract will be retroactive to July 1, 2018.

As always, we will keep you updated as new information is available.

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

Each year, on Independence Day, we remember the day our country was born and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. We also remember the courageous men and women that have shaped our country’s growth and protected our safety since that historic day on July 4, 1776. As you celebrate our nation’s freedom, please take a moment to reflect on those serving in the United States Military who are standing a post both at home and abroad to ensure we continue to be a free nation.

As you enjoy your families, friends and fireworks, please remember that summer is a busy time of year for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. We have to be ready to answer the call when the phone rings. This holiday (and every day) do not drink and drive. Drink responsibly! 

On behalf of your Local 1014 Executive Board, please enjoy a safe and healthy Independence Day.

On behalf of Local 372 President Rex Pritchard:

“The support of the IAFF and the CPF has been overwhelming and so appreciative. The support of local’s from across the nation has been equally amazing and much appreciated. On behalf of the Local 372 Board of Directors, I would like to invite all sworn fire fighters to join us in celebrating the life of our fallen Brother, Captain David Rosa, at our union hall immediately after the ceremony. Our union hall is located at 2201 Cherry (cross street is Hill). Parking for members who are attending on fire engines will be on Cherry Street south of the union hall and on Hill Street. Members who are in personal vehicles will be able to park in parking lots just west of the union hall and at the neighboring elementary schools. Local 372 will have food and drink for all those attending and a guest book for locals to sign and offer condolences that we will give to the family".

"This has hit our membership extremely hard and we truly appreciate all the support, especially the Rosa family. The Rosa family told me that they thought the fire family was limited to the Long Beach Fire Department / IAFF Local 372 and didn’t realize that the fire family is nationwide. We ask that union leadership spread the word through email, phone calls, texts, etc. We ask that people do not post on social media, as we want this strictly for our IAFF brothers and sisters."
