President's Report

March 4, 2015

Legislative:  On February 20, 2015 the Local met with District Attorney Ken Thompson of Brooklyn. His legal staff has proposed certain language to assist with our Assault Bill. This was a follow up meeting from earlier this year. Our bill is in Albany awaiting these changes before being introduced.

The chapter 96 and Fire Inspectors 25 and out bill are currently at the NYC Actuary office. We have been lobbying their office to expedite this process and deliver a note for both of our legislative pieces.

Contract Negotiations: On January 21, 2015 and on February 11, 2015 Local 2507 met with Local 3621 to continue discussing moving forward with negotiations. On February 12, 2015 research and negotiations department advised New York City Office of Labor Relations a request that all involved parties begin negotiations for a successor agreement to the current 2006-2010 Memorandum of Agreement. We have requested possible bargaining dates. We will keep you advised.

Vice President's Report

March 4, 2015

Station 59: On Tuesday March 3, 2015, Station 59 had their ribbon cutting ceremony. Station 59 is located at 101-10 Foster Ave in Brooklyn. Station 59 will run 5 BLS units and 2 ALS units.

On The Job Injuries: All too often members are injured on this job and do not heed to the notion of filling out a comp package. I don’t care how minor an injury may seem, fill out a comp package and contact a comp lawyer. Minor injuries today can and have turned into huge career ending injuries.

False Documentation: There has been a sudden spike in the submission of false documentations. Why: please do not think for one minute that the department will not check on any submission of medical documentation. Don’t put your career on the line and submit false docs. Your doctor is not going to put his career on the line for you. Submitting false documentation could potentially lead to your arrest by DOI and also you being terminated. Don’t do it!
