Happy Thanksgiving!
Updated On: Dec 24, 2021


Sisters and Brothers, 

On behalf of your Local 1014 Executive Board, the Local 1014 Health and Welfare Trustees, and our Local 1014 Staff, we would like to wish you a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. 

While the past two years have been challenging not only for us but also for our families with the COVID-19 pandemic and our challenges within our Department, we have continued to work together as a fire family to get the job done and take care of each other.  We have much to be thankful for this holiday with our families back in the fire stations and changes we have negotiated to bring back sports, camaraderie-based activities, and drills in our firehouses.  We have struggled to hire and promote to fill the ranks but we have seen the impact of the hiring we have been able to accomplish on our membership in reduced recalls and ability to use our benefit time. Despite these uncertain times, our membership has been able to provide for our families and enjoy benefits like compensatory time off, raises, additional medical contributions, and more.

In the firehouse and our worksites, our personnel is the best in the business and firefighters flock to LA County to join our membership to be a part of our team.  We provide the highest level of service to our 4 million residents throughout unincorporated LA County and our 60 contract cities and our members are the backbone of that service.  

Please take time this weekend to stand with each other both at work and in our homes and enjoy the fruits of our labors.  Make Thanksgiving 2021 a time of reflection and fellowship as we break bread and enjoy all we have accomplished through solidarity.

In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and the Local 1014 Executive Board
