FRIDAY UPDATE

Brothers and Sisters,  

It has been over a month since the Woolsey Fire began. Local 1014 would like to remind its members, if you have not done so already, please utilize Personal Exposure Reporting (PER) through California Professional Firefighters (CPF).  

 

Toxic risks associated with wildfires are still just beginning to be understood. Exposure reporting is critical for Firefighters and Fire Personnel who have been exposed for an extended period of time. As fires get more intense and burn more fuel for a longer period of time, it is essential to record incidents to provide protective documentation for job-related illnesses. Learn more about CPF's online exposure reporting at www.peronline.org.

 

As we close out the year, we are excited to welcome our new Executive Board Members and have already begun planning for their orientation into the Union beginning January 8. In late January, the Executive Board, both new and incumbent members, will be attending the IAFF’s Vincent Bollon Affiliate Leadership Training Summit (ALTS) in Los Angeles. 

 

At this conference our Board members will be training on critically important issues including: collective bargaining, grievances, leadership, communications strategies, crisis communications, social media, behavioral health, political action and more. We would like to thank IAFF 10th District VP Frank Lima for setting up this programming for our members and members of the 10th District to participate in and learn.


Your Executive Board is always pushing to expand our knowledge on everything from member representation to legal proceedings and healthcare benefits in order to make our Union stronger and provide a better life for you and your families. 

                       

We will have more next week as we look to wrap up the year strong and with a solid contract that reflects the value of our members and the quality of care they provide to our communities. More next week….

 In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
