NEW IAFF LOCAL Looking for Info
Im seeking the help of all the fellow brothers out there. I am the president of one of the newest IAFF locals. One of the biggest questions our members have is what can the union and the IAFF do for me? We have had a lot of our questions answered by other locals in the area and our state Association. The problem we have is that we are in KY which has no law for collective bargaining for public employees. So im looking for other locals that are in non collective bargaining states. What are some of the things that you have done and gained from being in the IAFF?
Anything left in the forums is my opinion and does not reflect my department or any organization i belong to.

The IAFF is a wealth of information! They will help you with your contract, set up fire service ems, etc. They are a great resource for almost anything.

The IAFF has been very helpful to us. We have 6 fulltime FFs---in NH you have to have 10 to be automatically recognized as a bargaining unit. The Town could recognize us anyway, but refuses. We have received help on leave time issues and some others that have cropped up. All in all, I think it has been very beneficial even though we can't negotiate a contract.

A better question might be what can you do without the union, the answer is not a lot
