Brothers & Sisters

Your 1014 Executive Board has been busy this week...

Yesterday, your Executive Board Negotiations Team continued contract negotiations with the County of Los Angeles.  We successfully fought back on the Fire Chief's proposed policy changes including an attack on our coveted bid and transfer system.  We also continued to press the County on our key economic issues including special bonus structures as well as general salary increases and parity pay with the Sheriffs (ALADS) who as you reached a tentative agreement recently.  

The Lifeguards (LACOLA) are still bargaining with the County as well and ALADS have sent their contract out to a ratification vote with their members.  We are set to go back to the table the first week of July and the following week of July to finish negotiations on what promises to be a very good contract.  We should have a tentative agreement soon with the contract to be effective July 1st.  We will continue to keep you informed as we progress.   

At the beginning of the week, our Executive Board attended the 2nd Annual IAFF 10th District Partnership Education Program (PEP).  Local 1014 together with United Firefighters of Los Angeles City (UFLAC) Local 112 was proud to help host our brothers and sister from across the Western United States and engage in this collaborative and educational forum.  Your Executive Board attended classes on leadership, municipal financial analysis, negotiations, behavioral health, cancer awareness, and other critically important topics for our members.  The networking with other Union Firefighter leaders was invaluable.

Special thanks to IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger (who provided video remarks to the attendees), IAFF 10th District Vice-President Frank Lima and his staff for putting on an educational and meaningful event.

Conferences like this are vital to furthering the cause of solidarity, education, and unity amongst our IAFF brothers and sisters and remind us that we are stronger together. With the impending Janus v AFSCME decision at the US Supreme Court, it has never been more important that we stand together and continue the fight for the wages, benefits and working conditions our members need as we protect our communities. We encourage you to keep your eye on this decision and what the outcome to public employees will be.  If this decision goes against AFSCME you will begin to see the destruction of public employee unions. 
Watch for more on this case.
