FRIDAY UPDATE

Brothers and Sisters,  

Today Local 1014 Executive Board members and the Local 1014 Health Plan had the pleasure of welcoming our new recruits during Family Day at the LACoFD East County Training Center. Informing our new recruits and their families about the benefits of union membership and the excellent healthcare benefits offered through the Local 1014 Health Plan is one of the most important things we do to continue the tradition of strength through unity and solidarity. 

         

Once these new recruits graduate they will join our ranks, learn our profession, and help to relieve our understaffing and recall issues. We continue to push for a comprehensive and consistent hiring plan from the Department and the County that prepares for the future of our Department and our members. Additionally, Local 1014 Executive Board members continued Staffing Committee meetings this week. We made significant progress on our 7-day staffing issues. We also continue to work towards resolutions on promotions and entry level testing. We will have more on this soon as we schedule follow-up meetings next week for all these issues. 

Yesterday, your Local 1014 Executive Board continued contract negotiations with the County of Los Angeles. As you all know, this process has been grueling and exhausting for our Executive Board as we continue to fight for the best contract possible for our members. We have a follow-up negotiation meeting on Monday with the County’s negotiations team to continue to hammer out the final details of our contract. In addition, today we have a meeting with the CEO regarding our fringe benefit negotiations with the County Coalition of Unions (CCU). As we continue negotiations on both fronts, we are fighting for every dollar. Look for more information on the contract and staffing next week as we look to close out the year with a contract that reflects the value of our members and their hard work and sacrifice for our communities.  

 In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
