    Default Union question

    I am a BC for a major California fire department. We are part of the local bargaining unit. Being in the union has its advantages and disadvanteges.

    I have a friend who is a BC in another state on a small department. There are only 3 BC's on the department. They were just voted out of the union. What advice can I give him as to where he can get representation if necessary? What does everyone else do???

    They can approach the IAFF and seek their own bargaining unit.

    Despite my screen name, I am a Deputy Chief an still a member of IAFF Local 1714.
