    I'm pretty sure you are correct. The IAFF will not be doing any hiring in NJ in 2010.

    Awwww, come on George, can't leave the new guy hangin that bad!!

    Jsmigs, the IAFF doesn't hire the firefighter's. Each municipality hires them, and if the department's union is represented by the IAFF as the bargaining union, then the employee may pay dues, DO THE RIGHT THING, and become a member.
    A Fire Chief has ONLY 1 JOB and that's to take care of his fireman. EVERYTHING else falls under this.

    No difference....PFMBA is not going to be doing any hiring either.
    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?
