1014 Election Info and Update
Posted On: Oct 04, 2010


Sisters and Brothers of Local 1014…we are one of the strongest Unions in the State of California and that is evidenced by how we exist currently in this climate where other Fire Departments and Unions are suffering horrendous cut backs and concessionary bargaining, staffing reductions and brown-outs as well as lay-offs in the worst cases we see.
This is a direct result of Political Action efforts and relationships we have built with State and Local elected officials, management officials of the Department, and the Board of Supervisors and the CEO of Los Angeles County.  We tend to those relationships with great care and with the help of our partners in the House of Labor and within a variety of Alliances we have forged both at the State Level through CPF and the Local Level. 
November 2nd General Elections are upon us and we are supporting a variety of candidates on behalf of our issues and the State issues are listed on our Website in the links below.  The Candidate endorsements and Propositions are listed.  As always, we recognize that each individual member needs to weigh all of the issues on balance and arrive at the choice for candidates they can believe in and support.  We have given you the information that affects your wages, hours, working conditions and most importantly your retirement and health benefits.
Other Issues of Significance to Read Up on are:
  • Fire Station 167 Re-Opens!  More to follow, but 167’s in El Monte is open again as a result of almost a years worth of work to elect a friendly city council, put a new city manager and city attorney in place, re-write the Safer Act Grant to allow re-hiring to be covered, and negotiating with the City to fulfill their financial obligation in addition to the grant monies to open the station up for 3 years…we are working on long term funding solutions, but for now, thanks to Your Union, Fire Chief Freeman and his Staff, and the City Officials we now enjoy…we are back in the saddle!
  • William Dallas Jones Cancer Presumption Act Signed into Law….read more below.  Go 1014!
  • IAFF Memorial Wall Recognition for our members….thank you to the Department, Honor Guard, Chaplains and 1014 for putting together a fitting tribute and ensuring our members were remembered….read more below.
  • Union Election Nominations – Tuesday September 12th at the Hall – Come on Down and help make the quorum and get first hand information on the issues.
  • Phone Banking in Pomona and the Union hall….sign up and get down to help out!  September 4th – 7th at the Union Hall, join firefighters from throughout our region to phone bank to our own members about the Get out the Vote Campaign for Jerry Brown and the Propositions as well.  Nightly help needed in Pomona as well…
We will be sending out more information regarding all of this and more in our upcoming Update Newsletter, but hopefully this gives you a good update in the interim to be educated and involved in issues affecting our profession.
