While I have no doubt that you believe them to be facts, the fact is just believing something to be a fact doesn't make it one.

That's great that you have a work environment like that, but not everybody's in that situation.
There is simply no need for a union at my combo department, and given the likely progression in leadership, i see no reason in the forseeable future as such.
We are garunteed raises and promotional procedures by law. We have input on wage and benefit increases such as uniform allowances and certification incentive pay schedules. And we have a tremendous amount of inputat the Cap[tain and Senior Firefighter levels on SOPs, policies and procedures and equipment/apparatus purchases.
Do you realize that if you guys did go IAFF, the union guys that would be "interfering" would be the very same guys providing "input" now.
There simply is no need for the interference of a union, and I stated, the majority of the career staff feel the same way.
Yes, the IAFF is very anti-union.
As far as the IAFF, I have seen thier anti-union feelings and efforts at the local level.
Proof read much?:rolleyes:
The IAFF stands for..........
You can say all you want that is the the locals, but it's still the union. Sorry, but I have no need and very little respect for the IAFF and what it stands for.
.....safe working conditions,
.....proper staffing and responses to incidents,
.....adequate training for the types of calls you have or could have,
.....having the necessary equipment for the types of calls you have or could have,
.....disciplinary process that is fair and equitable (i.e no favoritism),
.....accountability for our employers (i.e. Mayors, City Managers, Council Members, etc.) and the decisions that they make regarding public safety.
Just a few examples for you.
Sorry to hear that you have no need or respect for these things and won't be standing by our side on them.:rolleyes:
