2.    Altus - Nothing New

 

3. Chickasha – Nothing New

 

  4.    DuncanUnion conducted a vote on new contract terms 

      during special union meeting. Union members voted to   

      approve the contract terms the city had proposed which      

      included no raises but did include language in the   

      promotional policy that I am being told allows the city to

      reorganize the department as they see fit. I informed the         

      President and another member of the local that I believe

      the vote they conducted was not valid and did not meet the

      requirements to ratify the contract however I believe they

      are moving forward with it to have the council vote to

      ratify on January 11th.

 

5.    Lawton – Filed a grievance on promotional policy and waiting for response from Chief.

 

6.    Newcastle – Dates set for April on Interest Arbitration, attended investigative meeting for member who was accused of arriving to work intoxicated and also attended pre-d hearing for member, the city suspended the member for 5 shifts without pay and ordered him to go to counseling for substance abuse, wrote a grievance for their president who submitted it to the interim fire chief based on the fact that the city did not follow the policy on testing for substances under the reasonable suspicion article. After submitting the grievance more evidence surrounding the circumstance came to light and the grievant subsequently asked the president to withdraw the grievance.

6.    Newcastle – Met with City and told them what we had to have to be able to reach an agreement on the 2010/2011 contract and they declined to accept our proposals so we invoked the process and informed them we will move forward and take outstanding issues to interest arbitration.

EMS COMMITTEE REPORT

                             

            Had conference call with Chalk, Jimmy Johnson (ambulance provider), and Greg Reid (ambulance provider) to discuss HB 1888 and possible alternatives.  The newest version of HB 1888 doesn’t include any changes to the Duty to Act however both Greg and Jimmy said they are going to try to go through the Dept. of Health to get the rules and regulations changed. We came up with possibly another solution and that is all EMS providers must come up with mutual aid agreements with the other EMS providers in their area to ensure that there is coverage. Not sure if this is going to work but its something to work with.

Crossover work in other Districts and/or other PFFO business:

 

     Held the first PFFO EMS committee meeting at the PFFO office on September 29th and minutes are attached. Had great participation and very good discussion I think we have good group of guys and are on the right track.

    EMS coalition held their monthly meeting and Mike Burris attended in my place due to me being out of state. Major thing to report on is that the board voted to revoke Rodney Johnson’s board seat based on the fact that he didn’t get the proper paperwork in to Lindsey in time.

    The interim study on HB 1888 got underway and Phil Reid represented us in my place due to being at the AFL-CIO convention. Lindsey said he did a great job. Rodney Johnson spoke and at one point said he represented the fire service or some portion of the fire service in the meeting. Unfortunately he spoke after Phil did so we weren’t able to make it clear that he doesn’t represent the firefighters. However Lindsey wrote a letter and sent it to all those in attendance and made it very clear that he represents us in no way shape or form.

     Attended the State and Provincial officers meeting along with Jim in Philadelphia, had a great time and gained a great deal of information and knowledge. The IAFF General President spoke with us on the last day. With a smaller group of people it became more of a question and answer type of meeting. Some of the topics I have listed below:

1.    National Collective Bargaining Bill-

Mr. Schaitberger spoke at length about the delays in getting the bill introduced. Basically he said that we have the votes but the problem is getting it to the floor. Once it’s to the floor it should pass. However there are three bills which are in line ahead of it. First of course is the Health Care Reform bill, second is the Federal Regulatory Bill, and finally the Energy Bill. Mr. Schaitberger did say that he has been assured that our bill will be heard this year and when it is heard it will pass.

2.    Safer Act-

There is $600 million guaranteed to the Safer Act, basically just waiting on the terms and conditions to be released which should be soon. That money will be enough to save over 5,000 firefighter jobs across the nation if needed. Layoffs will be the first priority and additionally manning will follow. So far there have been around 500 layoffs nationally.

3.    Fire Act-

They are working on getting the funded more balanced and not so weighted in the favor of volunteer departments. Under the Bush administration the grant funded was severely slanted in favor of the volunteers. Also working on getting replacement gear and equipment to be the priority instead of new equipment.

 4.  IAFF also working on Federal Wild land firefighting detail,    

      to eliminate private services that are funded by the forestry  

      agencies. Many “ma and pop” wild land fire services in 

      places like California, Nevada, Utah, and Florida which are

      costing our members jobs!

5.   Also working on new technology for turnout gear and a

    new prototype SCBA.

8.    Frederick- Nothing New

 

 

Crossover work in other Districts:

 

     I attended the EMS coalition earlier this month, it was my first one to attend and thanks Chalk for not telling me the PFFO position on the board is the vice-chair. Not much to report from the meeting other than the fact that Chalks arch nemesis Rodney Johnson and his medic institute requested a seat on the board, and due to a flawed constitution and by-laws his request was granted. Also have gotten several volunteers for the PFFO EMS committee from brothers across the state hopefully we will be able to have a meeting in the next few weeks.
