Merry Christmas
&
Happy Holidays

Local 1014 members close out the year with an extraordinary month of fighting fires throughout Southern California including the Thomas fire - the largest fire in California's history. May we give pause to remember all of the fallen and we shall never forget CAL FIRE's Cory Iverson who made the ultimate sacrifice on the Thomas Fire.

We have also been fighting fires in other areas as well. As we have seen there have been some changes nationally and one of those was the push to stop funding the Assistance to Firefighters (AFG) and Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant programs. These funds were set to expire January 2, 2018. Like many departments nationally our department has taken advantage of these grants in El Monte and Inglewood just to name a few places.

We worked hard on our friends and those that have not always been our friends to get these programs funded. We worked side by side with the IAFF and other locals to keep the funding alive.

Our hard work paid off. Read about it by clicking here.

After a many hours of hard work we have finally been able to convince the County that they do in fact owe us the Holiday hours for all 56 hour firefighters. As you may know during our County Coalition of Unions (CCU) negotiations in 2015 we were able to secure another holiday.  Cesar Chavez day. Every County employee except 56 hour firefighters were granted that holiday in 2017.

This happened literally in the 11th hour and it will show on your January 15th pay warrant. It will be credited as of December 31, 2017. What this means is if you are retiring in 2018 you can take full advantage of the 1/2 shift for your highest year calculation.

We are still working on the vacation time. As of now you will see any excess hours on your January 30th pay warren like you may have on your January 30, 2017 pay warren. We are still going through the administrative process established by County code and will be heading to arbitration later in 2018. We will keep you updated.

Remember for those in Bargaining Units (BU) 601 & 602 our contract ends at midnight December 31st. Our last salary increase is 2% and that will happen January 1st, 2018 and show on your January 30th pay warrant. We have yet to sit at the bargaining table for official negotiations as that will happen in January and we will keep moving forward until we get a fair contract. As we have done in the past we will have a contract negotiations update link on our website (local1014.org). You will need to be registered to view this as it will be under the member resources heading.

Please remember to be safe this holiday season, don’t drink and drive. We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays as we close out a remarkable year.

It’s been a good 2017 for our Local 1014 Members. Know that we will work hard to make 2018 even better!

On behalf of your 1014 Executive Board we wish you a
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
