Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

 FRIDAY UPDATE               

Brothers and Sisters, 

This week, our Local 1014 Executive Board attended the California Professional Firefighters Legislative Conference in Sacramento. The Local 1014 Executive Board had a full schedule lobbying our state legislators on critically important legislation including: 
 

·      SB 542 (Stern) and AB 1116 (Grayson) - Firefighters’ Behavioral Health Package - Creating a rebuttable post-traumatic stress injury (PTSI) presumption and statewide standards for a Firefighter peer support crisis referral program. 
 

·      AB 1544 (Gipson/Hertzberg) - Community Paramedicine or Triage to Alternate Destination Act of 2019 
 

·      AB 932 (Low) - Firefighters Out-of-State Injuries - Providing protection to our members who render aid in a time of crisis, such as the Route 91 mass shooting in Las Vegas. 
 

·     AB 1668 (Carrillo) - Education Employment Reentry Program- Building on the California Conservation Corp program and offering a career path to those formerly incarcerated through work on hand crews. 
 

Additionally, Local 1014 walked the halls to explore options to amend current legislation to allow more descriptive wording for future public safety measures that will help fund more resources for our members and our Department. 

Special thank you to all our local legislators who took time to meet with us including: Secretary of State Alex Padilla, CA State Treasurer Fiona Ma, Senator Holly J. Mitchell, Senator Bob Hertzberg, Senator Maria Elena Durazo, Assemblymember Phillip Chen, Assemblymember Christy Smith and Assemblymember Laura Friedman.

          

Contract 

As we said last week, we are working very hard with the County to finalize pensionable language for our 601/602 Contract. Once finalized we will be moving forward with retro pay and issuing checks. This affects the Sheriffs and Lifeguards as well and retroactivity continues to roll as we get language finalized. We will construct a comprehensive contract update next week to address all of the pension and Board of Supervisors issues we have had to deal with over the past few weeks, including PEPRA compliance with our MOU.  

Be safe out there and take care of each other. 

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
