President's Report

May 3, 2017

Alternative Work Schedule: On April 19th, 2017 the unions met with the Office of Labor Relations to discuss the expansion of the 12 hour tours. It was agreed to expand the pilot program to Station 46 in Queens, Station 14 in the Bronx and expansion at EMD which will include the supervisors. Next scheduled meetings at OLR to discuss AWS and receive data is May 16th, 2017 and June 13th, 2017

Family Assistance Unit: On April 5, 2017 we discussed donating a vehicle in memory of our sister Yadira Arroyo. On April 19th, 2017 Local 2507 Executive Board voted to donate the vehicle to the FDNY Family Assistance Unit Transportation Division. The mural on the vehicle was created by members of Battalion 26 (The Tin House) in the Bronx. We hope to see the vehicle in its completed form soon.

Constitutional Convention: In light of what we will be facing in November with a possible Constitutional Convention, we must focus on educating our members about the importance of defeating such an initiative. If any changes are made to Article V, Section 7 of the NYS Constitution our pension benefits could be diminished or worse. This would dramatically affect all future and present retirees. We know that many cities and states have gone against labor using the tactic of informing the public of the costs surrounding union pensions and benefits and blaming their economic woes on pensions and other benefits. Look at San Diego's pension reform initiative, Proposition B which passed overwhelmingly, it gave all new city workers a 401K instead of a defined benefit pension. We must work with all unions to educate the public of the cost of a Constitutional Convention to the tax payer and the damage it would do to all union members.

Equal Employment Class Initiative: On or about April 22, 1017 both EMS unions met with the Kurland Group to discuss an Equal Employment Class action suit against the City of New York to address unfair pay and promotional practices. The initiative would, through a class action suit, seek to recover damages and seek relief from the unfair pay structure and promotional practices of the city. However, it would be inappropriate to lock the union in costly litigation not knowing the results of our elections.

Legislation: The unions joint Civil Service Bill, which would require civil service exams up to the rank of one star chief, has passed the senate and has been forwarded to the assembly. The FPi 25 & out pension bill and the Chapter 96 bill are awaiting fiscal notes. Our Tier 6 legislation is in committee awaiting a bill number. Senator Golden and Assemblyman Abbate have agreed to introduce a bill to change the NYC Administrative Code to include our titles in the death benefit which currently applies to other uniform titles.

EMS Day at Citi Field: Sunday May 25th, 2017 at 1 pm the New York Mets will play the L.A. Angles. Come have fun with family and friends. A portion of each ticket sold thru the unions will benefit the National EMS Memorial Foundation and the Arroyo family. EMT Sarah McShane will sing God Bless America.

In Solidarity;

Israel Miranda
President
