CALL TO ARMS—LOCAL 1014 NEEDS YOU!
SAVE THE DATE: SOLIDARITY RALLY AND DEMONSTRATION AT LA COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, Local 1014 Members along with Los Angeles County Lifeguards Association (LACoLA) will be converging upon the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors’ meeting to demonstrate our resolve and make our voices heard to our elected officials. Please join your brothers and sisters as we fight to have our voices heard on the important issues affecting our job.
This September 11th, we will not only be commemorating the sacrifice of our Brothers and Sisters on that fateful day in New York, but also shining a light on ever-increasing risks we take each and every day in order to protect our communities. Whether it be the post-traumatic and cumulative stress injuries from a lifetime of tough calls and service or the fatigue from recalls, increasing call volume and fires statewide, our members need to make their voices heard.
On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors will be discussing the possibility of a study on post-traumatic and cumulative stress injuries in the Fire Service. We need to show them that these are not just numbers on a page, they are real people with real families taking risks and bearing the burden of protecting their constituents.
We need our elected officials to know that the health and welfare of our members should be their number one priority. They need to step up and provide the resources we need to take care of our members, including the formation of a robust Behavioral Health Program and other items which we have been aggressively bargaining. Without support from our elected officials and the County, we will continue to see more recalls, more post-traumatic and cumulative stress injuries. Additionally, the Fire Chief and Management will be in attendance and need to hear our collective voice.
We will not waiver in the fight for our members. Not since 2005 have Local 1014 members needed to demonstrate and make our voices heard before the Board of Supervisors. We need your help to make it clear to the members of the Board of Supervisors that labor is united and that we will not accept less than we deserve.
Please wear uniform pants, or dark slacks, and the dark blue Local 1014 Union t-shirt. If you do not already have a t-shirt, we will be providing them at the rally.
