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,

Today Local 1014 Executive Board members along with representatives from The 1014 Health Plan participated in a meet and greet with our new third-party administrator for workers' compensation for the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Sedgwick. The staff of Sedgwick was given live demonstrations of the types of incidents that Firefighters engage in every day. These demonstrations were accompanied by a description of what types of injuries often accompany these incidents. This first-hand experience is critical to their staff understanding how difficult this job is and how much we need every member of our team. 

As we all know, the workers' comp system has been a source of frustration for our members. With increased call loads and increasing severity of calls, we need to have every member of our Department healthy and able to get the treatment as soon as possible for work-related injuries. We hope that this new third-party administrator will be a partner in this process and in streamlining this for our members.  Local 1014 is committed to working with the Department and Sedgwick to get our members the treatment they need quickly and efficiently so they can get healthy and back to work. 

603/604 Negotiations 

Also today our Local 1014 Executive Board met with the County to continue negotiations on our 603/604 Bargaining Units, which includes Dispatchers, Forestry, Health HazMat and Fire Prevention.  We continue to fight for our members to receive a fair contract that reflects the increased workload and responsibility of these bargaining groups. We will update you as the negotiations process continues. 

Have a great week, be safe and take care of each other. 

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
