UPDATE

Brothers & Sisters

Your 1014 Executive Board has been busy this week...

Yesterday, your Executive Board Negotiations Team continued contract negotiations with the County of Los Angeles.  We successfully fought back on the Fire Chief's proposed policy changes including an attack on our coveted bid and transfer system.  We also continued to press the County on our key economic issues including special bonus structures as well as general salary increases and parity pay with the Sheriffs (ALADS) who as you reached a tentative agreement recently.  

The Lifeguards (LACOLA) are still bargaining with the County as well and ALADS have sent their contract out to a ratification vote with their members.  We are set to go back to the table the first week of July and the following week of July to finish negotiations on what promises to be a very good contract.  We should have a tentative agreement soon with the contract to be effective July 1st.  We will continue to keep you informed as we progress.   

At the beginning of the week, our Executive Board attended the 2nd Annual IAFF 10th District Partnership Education Program (PEP).  Local 1014 together with United Firefighters of Los Angeles City (UFLAC) Local 112 was proud to help host our brothers and sister from across the Western United States and engage in this collaborative and educational forum.  Your Executive Board attended classes on leadership, municipal financial analysis, negotiations, behavioral health, cancer awareness, and other critically important topics for our members.  The networking with other Union Firefighter leaders was invaluable.

Special thanks to IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger (who provided video remarks to the attendees), IAFF 10th District Vice-President Frank Lima and his staff for putting on an educational and meaningful event.

Conferences like this are vital to furthering the cause of solidarity, education, and unity amongst our IAFF brothers and sisters and remind us that we are stronger together. With the impending Janus v AFSCME decision at the US Supreme Court, it has never been more important that we stand together and continue the fight for the wages, benefits and working conditions our members need as we protect our communities. We encourage you to keep your eye on this decision and what the outcome to public employees will be.  If this decision goes against AFSCME you will begin to see the destruction of public employee unions. 
Watch for more on this case.

Fill the Boot - 2018

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3100 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

Local 1014 members,

On behalf of Local 1014 and the families served by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), we would like to thank you for your support of our upcoming annual Los Angeles County Local 1014 Fill the Boot to be held on Thursday June 28th (B), Friday June 29th (C) and Saturday June 30th (A), 2018. Because of you, Los Angeles County Firefighters have raised over $3,500,000 since we began the Fill the Boot campaign many years ago. These donations have been used to provide health care and support services to the families served by MDA. In the 64 years the members of the IAFF have raised over $630,000,000

With our participation in events like Fill the Boot, MDA will continue to fund comprehensive healthcare clinics at renowned facilities like Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and UCLA.  In addition, MDA will fund lifesaving research at USC and Cedars Sinai. Last but not least, your support sends children with neuromuscular disease to MDA summer camp. Each and every one of your efforts will not go unnoticed. As the IAFF’s charity of choice for over 60 years, you are a part of the tradition and commitment to the families who live with muscle disease. Your character and dedication to help those in need is what our profession is about.

With the Fire Chief and his Executive Staff’s full support, we need all hands on deck to get our total over $200,000. There will be at least one MDA staff person or volunteer at each Battalion collection site. Supplies have already been delivered to the Battilion HQ stations.

Once again, we would like to thank you in advance for your full participation in our Fill the Boot to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger.  Each year, we participate in many events for the department. Los Angeles County Fire Fighters Local 1014 is proud to Fill the Boot for MDA. This is OUR event and one that is very important to Local 1014 and Firefighters across the county as well as those that the Fill the Boot  campaign helps. Let’s work together with MDA staff to make sure it’s a safe and successful event.

We have been assured there will be MDA staff at every site to make sure we have a successful event. If you have any issues or problems, please contact 1st Vice President Dave Morse on his cell at (626) 672-5219 or by email at dmorse@local1014.org, Andy Doyle (562) 307-7045 or email at andydoyle@local1014.org or Jason Cervantes (951) 830-7963 or email at jcervantes@local1014.org.

Fraternally,

Your Local 1014 Executive Board

2018 Negotiations for Units 601 & 602
June 12, 2018

Brothers & Sisters,

Many of you may have heard, the Sheriffs through their labor union ALADS reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) on their contract. We want to congratulate the ALADS for successfully negotiating increases for public safety personnel.  A win for public safety and labor helps us all.

Today, your Local 1014 Executive Board was hard at work once again at the negotiation table with the County working hard for increased benefits and specialty bonuses for our members. We are on pace to have a TA with the County and a contract by July 1, 2018.

Additionally, we continue to bargain through the County Coalition of Union (CCU) for our fringe benefits, we will be continuing these negotiations tomorrow.

Your Local 1014 Executive Board is committed to ensuring that our members receive the wages, benefits and working conditions they need and deserve as we protect the over 10 million residents of Los Angeles County.

We will continue to update you as our negotiations progress over the next few weeks.

In Solidarity,

Your Local 1014 Executive Board

June 2018 Primary Election Results

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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

June 2018 Primary Election results

Local 1014 endorsed and supported several candidates in the June 6th #CAPrimary #Election this year. As a union, we were effective in helping shape the future of the national, state and local elected offices which have a direct impact on our membership and the professional fire service.

Local 1014 played heavily in the Governor’s race and the Attorney General’s race in addition to several State Assembly and State Senate races.  We backed candidates who have consistently supported Firefighters and Firefighter issues. The Governor and the Attorney General are two influential elected offices which directly affect our pensions, retiree healthcare, workers compensation, and health & safety legislation.  It is critical that we continue to engage in these races to have a strong voice in protecting our wages, benefits and working conditions.

Thank you to all Local 1014 members for your continued support which allows us to have such a powerful impact. We will keep you updated on our political action efforts over the next several months as we work to ensure our endorsed candidates come out on top in the General Election in November.

Thank you for your continued support.

Election Day Tuesday June 5th - CPF & 1014 recommendations

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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

Your Union (CPF & 1014) voter guide

If you haven’t noticed, its that time again.  Time to do what other counties wish they had the freedom to do...VOTE.  When it comes down to it the important thing about Tuesday June 5th is that you get out and vote.

Using this link http://cpfvoterguide.org/ you will be able to go online and see who your Union is recommending you vote for.

When you get in that ballot box you need to vote for whomever you believe will do the job you are hoping for.  Get out there and vote for that person or persons you believe will do a good job.

When you elected your Executive Board of 1014 you elected us to do many things and one of those is to help get people elected that would work to protect our wages, hours and working conditions.  When we interview candidates for positions from local city council all the way to Governor or Congress that is all we are focused on.  We do not ask questions about daylight savings time, National Parks or anything else that does not affect your wages, hours or working conditions.

We ask, very directly, about your pensions, health and safety, wages and presumption laws to name only a few.  You do not elect us to ask about anything else.

We recommend you vote for those that will do the most for firefighters, nothing more, nothing less.  We ask that you “vote your paycheck”.

As we all know there are some serious attacks both nationally and in our own state that will hurt or possibly destroy public unions.  There are serious efforts to drastically change our pensions.  We look at elected officials that have a track record of standing up for us on those issues and many other Firefighter issues.

Remember you may not agree with the recommendations we make for whatever reason but also remember you asked us to protect your wages, hours and working conditions, and we look for people that we know will do that.

Get out and VOTE June 5th.

Sincerely,

Your Local 1014 Executive Board
