FRIDAY UPDATE 
 


Sisters & Brothers,

This week, we learned of the tragic events in San Jose. We are shocked and saddened by the horrific shooting which took place at a VTA Union meeting. We stand with our brothers and sisters in Labor as they mourn the nine dead this week in this senseless tragedy. 

Our thoughts as prayers are with their family, friends, and our Union brothers and sisters at the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 256. We are working to send our LACOFD Peer Support Team to assist in the critical incident response for both the victims' families and the first responders on this incident. 


PERFORMANCE NET UPDATE

As previously mentioned in past Friday Updates, Local 1014 is trying to get out ahead of potential issues in regards to The Performance Net-based annual performance evaluations and future promotional candidates for Captain and Battalion Chief, as it pertains to the Appraisal of Promotability (Form 574.1).  As it is right now, The Performance Net model does not transfer over very well with how the AP is formatted for Captain and Battalion Chief, especially as it pertains to Work Activities the candidate has done throughout the rating period.

Last month, Directors Pat Dolan and Jason Cervantes met with members of the Executive Staff, DHR, and the Exam Unit to start the process of modifying The Performance Net PE model to be more in line with how the AP Work Activities are worded and to make sure all the Work Activities can be included in The Performance Net categories seamlessly.  As it is right now, that isn’t how it is, and Local 1014 is trying to make sure all future promotional candidates will be able to correctly document where their Work Activities should be placed.

Deputy Chief Chris Anderson and his staff, along with members of ISD and IT, have agreed to help include language from our AP Form 574.1, and the Work Activities in particular, in The Performance Net PE forms for all levels, from Firefighter through Captain, so that supervisors who are writing performance evaluations for their subordinates, can properly document the work their subordinates have done, and more importantly, get the credit they so rightful earned.  Remember, Captain’s and Battalion Chief’s, this documentation is vital when your subordinates are trying to promote, and they are using their PE’s as their documentation.   

This is still a work in progress, and probably will not take effect until the testing cycle for 2022, so in the meantime, do your best when filling out your annual Performance Evaluations for your subordinates.  Their promotion could be riding on how you document their work.

Memorial Day 

Finally, as we commemorate Memorial Day this weekend, please take time to remember those who have sacrificed to protect our way of life. Please join the entire Local 1014 Executive Board as we pause this Memorial Day to reflect and remember all of the military personnel who have served or are serving our great Country. In all branches of service, Americans have proudly sacrificed so much to make America the greatest Country in the world.  It is important to remember those who have given their all so that we may prosper and have the freedoms we enjoy.

We would also like to once again take a moment to remind everyone to celebrate responsibly this holiday. If you make a mistake and have too much to drink, think you might have impairment from drinking, or if you know you will be having a few and be over the limit, DON'T DRIVE. Also, be mindful of distracted driving activities like texting. We want all our members and their families to celebrate safely this holiday and enjoy a well-earned break. 

Thank you to all our 1014 members who will be on the line during this holiday protecting and serving our citizens in Los Angeles County.  

Stay safe and have a great weekend. 

In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and the Local 1014 Executive Board
