FRIDAY UPDATE 
 

Brothers and Sisters, 

This week, your Local 1014 Executive Board attended the 2019 10th District Partnership Education Program (PEP) event. This is the largest 10th District PEP and Caucus event to-date with union members registered from across New Mexico, California, Arizona, and Hawaii. 

International Fire Fighters Association General President Harold Schaitberger addressed the members shortly before being called to Washington D.C. to announce the passage of the 911 Victim Compensation Fund bill authorizing permanent funding for our 911 first responders. Yet another example of how strength through unity and political action directly affects change for our members. 

Our Board Members participated in workshops on grievances, pensions, communications, political action, and other critically important topics which allow us to effectively represent you and fight for your interests. Local 1014 President Dave Gillotte was pleased to be a panelist at the first-ever 10th District Round Table Discussion featuring three topics: Pensions, Legal and Leadership. Trainings like these keep our Board Members up-to-date on changing laws, regulations and practices affecting union members.

Special thank you to our IAFF 10th District Vice President Frank Lima for hosting an informative and productive event and to our workers' compensation firm Straussner & Sherman for speaking on return to work and workers' comp issues at the PEP.

Payroll Update 

Last week, members of our Executive Board met with the Auditor-Controller’s Office and the payroll section to discuss the retro payment issue, to identify monies still due, and find solutions to reduce mistakes like these in the future. This week, we continued our discussions with payroll on remaining retro pay for our members. The payroll section is diligently working on creating the 7-1-19 pay tables as we speak. We expect their release soon.

Purchase of New Firehawks

Finally, we would like to thank our Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, especially Supervisor Kathryn Barger for pushing through the purchase of two additional Firehawk Helicopters for our Department. As we all know, fire season is coming up quickly and we cannot afford to not have the resources and equipment we need to keep our members and our communities safe. 

In Solidarity,


President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
