What's New at IAFF 1014
Friday August 4, 2017 UPDATE

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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

1014 Friday August 4th 2017 

As per our MOU we have sent a letter to the County notifying them we are ready to begin negotiations for bargaining units 601 and 602.  The actual sitting at the table with the County will begin shortly but prior to that we have our work cut out for us.

We will be gathering facts and figures from the County on all things within our department as well as all other bargaining units in the County.  We will read through every contract and evaluate what other bargaining units in the County receive that we do not and may be in our best interest to pursue.

We have a list of items that we will ask for at the table and off we go.

For those that are new to 1014, our last negotiations took many months which involved MANY meetings.  We asked for simple items that would benefit us all to complex items involving the firefighter ranks.  We will once again be pushing hard for everything we can.

We are committed to once again taking as long as necessary to get a fair contract that will benefit the members of 601 and 602 going to as many bargaining sessions as needed and doing whatever it takes.

V days

If you remember when we negotiated the County Coalition of Unions Contract (CCU) a few years ago one of the items we received was more vacation hours for 20 – 24+ year employees.

Previously after 12 years you earned only 240 hours of vacation per year.  With the new agreement, as of January 1, 2016 the new accrual rate changed to the following for 56 hour employees:

Vacation years of service

Vacation accrual per pay period

Maximum hours

20 to less than 21 years



21 to less than 22 years



22 to less than 23 years



23 to less than 24 years



24 years or more



The problem with this agreement is the County felt that once you accumulated a maximum of 720 hours you would stop accumulating.  The agreed in negotiations that the couldn’t do that because using those numbers it would be possible to stop accumulating hours in 2016 near October if you were a 24+ year employee that started the year with 480 hours and did not take any vacation time off during 2016.

To our surprise the County chose to stop allowing those employees that had reached 720 to accumulate any more vacation hours.  This affected anyone who began 2016 with 480 hours and took no vacation time.   So if you were 24 year employee you stopped accumulating in October.

The County chose to give those employees who stopped accumulating hours their “excess” hours on their January 30th, 2017 paycheck.

if you are a 24+ year employee and have not taken any vacation time in 2017 you will stop accumulating vacation time again very soon.

As we all know the maximum hours you can be paid off in January is 240 hours.  With the addition of the excess hours you now have time you can take off in your “highest year” without affecting those 240.  If you did not take any time in 2016 and you are a 24+ year employee you have 60 “excess hours”.  If you have not taken any in 2017 by December 31, 2017 you will have a total of 120 hours (5 shifts).

If you have stopped accumulating hours you will see you have 240 hours in excess with a total of 720 hours.  If you take a shift of vacation off you will drop below the 720 and begin to accumulate once again.

Where are with getting this resolved?  We are now going through the administrative process, meaning we have filed to get relief from an arbitrator.

We will get this resolved.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to contact Andy Doyle at (562) 307-7045 or by email at or you can contact any board member at (310) 639-1014.

F days

Again, in the CCU negotiations EVERY County employee was given another holiday (Cezar Chavez day).  This new holiday was the first in MANY years.  What this translated to for a 56-hour employee was a half shift.

The County has been fighting us on this as well.  There is a document from the 1950’s agreed to by the Board of Supervisors (BOS) that directed the County to give 56 hour fire series employees to use as we wish and like vacation time have a maximum accrual.

The County has said they will have the BOS draft and sign a new agreement soon.  That day has not come soon enough.

We have filed for administrative relief on this as well and are moving through the process.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to contact Andy Doyle at (562) 307-7045 or by email at or you can contact any board member at (310) 639-1014.

Happy 4th of July!

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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


July 4th is a time to enjoy parades, family, friends, BBQ and fireworks. Whether you go to a sponsored fireworks show or have your own celebration remember to use the safe and sane fireworks.

This summer seems to by flying by already. Enjoy the day and the rest of your summer.  As we have seen so far this potentially will be a very busy summer!

We live in the greatest country in the world. We celebrate the 4th of July as the birth of the United States of America.

On July 4th, 1776 the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. This is what established our nation. Our freedom continues to be protected by the men and woman of the United States Military. While you are celebrating our nation please take a moment to reflect on those that are standing a post somewhere to make sure we continue to be a free nation. Remember those that are away from their families this holiday and others, protecting what the Continental Congress envisioned when they drafted the document that our country was founded on. Take a few more minutes to remember those that have given their life to protect our Constitution and keep us safe.

Your 1014 board will be spending our 4th of July either in the station or with our families as well. We wish everyone a happy and safe 4th.

Please remember the busy time of year is now here for us. We have to be ready to answer the call when the phone rings. Be it an overtime, recall or your 1014 board, you have to be ready.

This 4th of July (and every day) do not drink and drive. Drink responsibly. Think before you start. Get a room or use a designated driver. Unfortunately, every holiday we have members that make a poor, life changing decision. Don't be that person this year.

Remember 601 & 602 bargaining units received a small salary increase as of July 1.  This will show up on your July 30th paycheck.

Four years ago today...WE SHALL NEVER FORGET!

Four years ago today...


On June 30, 2013, the wind-whipped Yarnell Hill wildfire turned suddenly and killed 19 members of Prescott's Granite Mountain Hotshots as they moved to re-engage the inferno, 30 miles south of Prescott.

The fire raged into Yarnell, a community of about 650 people, destroying more than 120 homes. In all, the blaze consumed 8,400 acres before firefighters at last contained it on July 10 2013.

Kevin Woyjeck, oldest son of our brother Joe Woyjeck, was a member of the Granite Mountain Hotshot crew who was one of the 19 that perished that day.

We ask all our members today to take a moment and remeber Kevin and his crew. Today will be a difficult day for Kevin's family as well as the familes of all the fallen members of the Granite Mountain Hot Shot Crew

The fallen firefighters, our IAFF brothers are:

Kevin Woyjeck, 21 Andrew Ashcraft, 29 Robert Caldwell, 23
Travis Carter, 31 Dustin Deford, 24 Christopher MacKenzie, 30
Eric Marsh, 43 Grant McKee, 21 Sean Misner, 26
Scott Norris, 28 Wade Parker, 22 John Percin, 24
Anthony Rose, 23 Jesse Steed, 36 Joe Thurston, 32
Travis Turbyfill, 27 William Warneke, 25 Clayton Whitted, 28
  Garret Zuppiger, 27
