We can never emphasize enough that political action is the cornerstone of protecting our members and their families while improving our wages, hours, and working conditions. Los Angeles County is the largest county in the nation. It is critical that our voice and the voice of our members is heard by those who make life-changing decisions on our behalf. Your Executive Board is constantly working to ensure that we are protected at every level of government, federal, state, and local.
Over its 70+ year history, Local 1014 has been a leader at every level of government ensuring that legislation is passed that protects our members at every level: health & safety, pension protections, and comprehensive benefits.
As a Union, we play heavily in all our local races, Board of Supervisors, Mayor and City Council, State Legislature, and Congressional. An endorsement from Local 1014 is highly coveted. The job of the Local 1014 Executive Board is to represent your interests and to support better wages, hours, and working conditions for our members. Our endorsement of candidates is based solely on their stance on Firefighter issues—this includes issues that affect our pensions, wages, and working conditions. Similarly, we analyze ballot measures throughout the County and the State that impact our pensions and our service levels in various cities where we provide Fire and EMS services. They are not partisan choices and they are not based on our personal political beliefs.
