    Default ESCi

    Anyone ever had any dealings with ESCi? If so what is your opinion on the quality of their work and how do they work with fire unions?

    My old local just filed a censure resolution against them.

    Resolution 28

    Google "ESCI Reports", and read some of their work.

    The consultants are usually retired chief officers, and the findings and recommendations tend to fall in line with what you would expect from administrators.

    As far as how they work with the union, that depends. If they are brought in by the city to evaluate the FD, the city can give the union a seat at the table, or not. Depending on what the law says in your state, anything they recommend could have to be bargained between labor and management, or not.

    Without knowing where you are, and the labor laws in your state, it's hard to say how they will work with your union.

    Watch your six, either way.

    No kidding. Especially when one considers the perspective their CEO brings to the table. He still believes that volunteers will work in an urban environment.
