Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,

 FRIDAY UPDATE               

Brothers and Sisters, 

As you may know, the Los Angeles County Auditor-Controller recently released a report on several aspects of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, including overtime. There are several problems with evaluation of our personnel deployment and overtime usage. At its core the report does not take into account critically important principles that govern the fire service like constant staffing and the distinction between recalls and voluntary overtime shifts. 

While we do not agree with the recommendations in the report or with the methodology used to assess overtime, the report does highlight what we already know, the Department needs to hire personnel more consistently and fix internal issues including the disconnect between management and the field. We are remaining vigilant about the content of this report and ensuring that the Department, our elected officials, the Board of Supervisors and the public are educated about the realities of the fire service and how best to protect our members safety and quality of life moving forward. Please know that all aspects of our members’ working conditions are protected by our MOU.

Contract  

This week we continued to do battle with the County regarding language for the approved contract. We had an excellent meeting on Thursday and hope to have a resolution soon. We appreciate your patience as we work to ensure that we not only receive the raises we agreed on but that we protect your future and your family’s future by ensuring things that should be pensionable are identified as such in the language. 

Be safe out there and have a good week. 

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
