What's New at IAFF 1014
Easter 2017

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

This holiday weekend started with Good Friday through Easter Sunday. Many of our members will be taking time to reflect and remember sacrifice and give pause for all that we have and why.  There will be everything from solemn services to Easter Egg Hunts, BBQ's and Family time.  Some of us will be at the Stations taking care of others all weekend.

Local 1014 would like to ask all of our members to take a moment this weekend, faithful or not, to reflect and consider how fortunate we are to be American and to be the part of the workforce that makes up the LA County Fire Fighters.  We work hard to be a premier team of Professional Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Forestry, Dispatchers, Heavy Equipment, Pilots, Health Haz-Matters, FSA, Fire Prevention and Fire Personnel in the business and we should be humble and proud of our work and all those who serve.

We also ask that you mark your calendars for May 20th, 2017, and plan to be at the LA County Fire Fighter's Memorial Ceremony at LAO.  We want every off-duty Local 1014 member to commit to attending this year.  If you are not working, you need to be there.  Join us to pay tribute and to "never forget" our fallen.

As most may know last week a young firefighter from Marietta Georgia Fire Department lost his life in a tragic accident on the boarder of LAC and LAFD. The vehicle he was traveling in was struck by a drunk driver. The other firefighters in the vehicle were treated and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Members of Local 1014 worked on this young brother but he had succumed to his injuries.

The days that followed proved that the brotherhood of the fire service is alive and well. Local 1014 members along with members of Local 112, LAPD, LAX and many other fire locals honored this young firefighter by making sure he was transported with honor and dignity from the coroners office to the mortuary then LAX for his trip home. It was an honor and a privileged to pay such a tribute to this firefighter.

Please keep his family, department and members of his community in your thoughts and prayers.

Easter Weekend is a perfect time to reflect, remember, sacrifice and commit to any number of things in our behaviors that make us better people, a better team of folks that serve others and to remember our fallen.  We encourage everyone to celebrate responsibly and make a plan early if you are going to drink alcohol.  Get a ride, get a room, get a driver set up before you roll.  Your job and your life or others depends on it. 

Happy Easter everyone an enjoy your families and our family this weekend.

March 7, 2017 Election round-up

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

LOCAL 1014 ELECTION EFFORTS MAKE A DIFFERENCE AGAIN!

Tuesday March 7th Local 1014 put a mark on the City Council Races and Initiatives in the County of Los Angeles. Lending our endorsement and support has made the difference in so many contests and issues.

Measure D

While not quite the 2/3rds vote necessary to re-affirm the existing fire tax in Palos Verdes Estates, Local 1014 came very close to making the mark on Measure D. We moved the vote from 47% yes when we started to 60.48%. We battled very low voter turnout in this affluent mostly republican neighborhood. The turnout was a paltry 9% with a little over 2500 people voting. Next steps will include meeting with the Mayor and City Council to help them plan for an initiative in 2018 to fix this issue. Absent a ballot measure to put revenue back for Fire and Paramedic Services, there will be no money in the City Budget for Fire. Obviously this is not a situation that can exist in PVA, and we look forward to a fix, but for now we will ensure no staffing shortages or cuts and use of City reserve funds to pay their contract. We helped elect one the council members also heading forward.

Measure H

The highly published initiative to fund a plan to combat Homelessness in a comprehensive plan addressing mental health, substance abuse, jobs, housing, children’s services, homeless veterans and more in alliance with the City of Los Angeles passed narrowly. A 2/3 vote was needed and Local 1014 with our partners in the Board of Supervisors, namely Mark Ridley Thomas, helped put the vote in at 67.44%! We look forward to the effect it will have on our responses as well as being the right thing in addressing the issue.

Measure CC

Covina voters listened to Local 1014 and supported a reauthorization of a 6% utility user’s fee to fund essential city services including fire and police. While we only needed at majority vote, we garnered 70.22% with a decent voter turnout. The City was extremely appreciative and so were the Police Officers Association. Next steps will be to help the health of the Budget and examine whether PM Positions will be reauthorized in the future. Stay tuned and nice work on this one.

Measure S

LA Federation of Labor and our Labor Partners, in particular the Building Trades, banded together to fight Measure S. S was a blatant attack to undermine our success with Measure JJJ last election providing for Building Projects in Los Angeles City and County by imposing a 2 year moratorium on building in the areas where the projects were taking shape. We defeated Measure S soundly with 68.85% of the vote sending a message to the special interests who tried to get in the way of jobs and revenue for the city.

We also interviewed and gave the sought after Local 1014 Endorsement to select Candidates in Local City Elections. We interviewed many candidates and narrowed our picks down to those who support our issues and are good partners in the cities as well as valid candidates.

We worked hard for candidates in 11 contract cities this cycle to include the following cities:

AZUZA
BELLFOWER
COVINA
GARDENA
LA MIRADA
MONTEREY PARK
PALOS VERDES ESTATES
SAN DIMAS
SOUTH EL MONTE
SOUTH GATE
WEST HOLLYWOOD

Local 1014 endorsed 22 Candidates in these cities and we were successful in 18 of the 22 endorsements. That is an 82% effective rate of success on our work. We will continue to work hard to ensure the elected officials in our Contract Cities as well as the County are Firefighter Issue friendly and will be partners in good times and bad.

Thank you to all the Brothers and Sisters who came out to help in Palos Verdes Estates and the other Cities we worked in to get this done. Thank you to all members of Local 1014 for your continued support and solidarity that allows us to be powerful political influences in the areas of Los Angeles County we serve. It is critical to keep our funding, staffing, and wages hours and working conditions in place through collective bargaining and political action. Once again we should all be very proud of our hard work and collective efforts.

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and Local 1014 Executive Board
