HAPPY NEW YEAR
As we watched the end of 2017 go up in flames...we welcome 2018
As 2017 ended we welcomed Hermosa Beach to the Los Angeles County Fire Department and we welcome our newest members to 1014. Congratulations to Hermosa's Local President Aaron Marks and his (now ours) members. We began service on the 30th of December to the City of Hermosa. Station 100 is now staffed by LACFD and protecting the residents of Hermosa.
2017 ended with some of our members STILL at the Thomas fire, the largest in the history of California. With that massive fire we will never forget our brother Cory Iverson and his family.
As we let you know recently we were finally granted a negotiated benefit that the County fought giving the 56 hour firefighters in bargaining units (BU) 601 & 602. The 12 hours of Holiday time will show up on your 1.15.18 paycheck and be credited toward you 12.31.17 benefit hours.
The first stop in 2018 for your Executive Board is negotiations to a successor MOU for BU 601 & 602. As we have said before we will keep you updated at local1014.org once we begin negotiations.
Be safe tonight. Make good decisions. PLEASE do not hesitate to get a ride.
We look forward to 2018. We will have some challenges both state and nation wide so please be ready if we call 911 for your help!
President Dave Gillotte and you Executive Board.
