Member Update


Good afternoon,

We recently held a meeting with management to discuss some ongoing issues.

Station 39- We have received a confirmation that renovation at 39 is going to begin this coming October.

The Department is awaiting the Office of Management and Budget final approval

Verification Unit- The Department advised additional staff has been added to expedite the process.

Sick Leave Policy- Held in abeyance for almost 10 years.

We demanded a new Sick Leave Policy to reflect our winning arbitration decision.

New policy is in process.

Mutuals- We expressed our interest in having our weekly mutual expanded beyond the same week.

Due to FLSA rules this might be an issue.

We’ll continue to work on this.

Payroll Issues- There are dozens upon dozens of different types of inquiries submitted each pay period,

frequently unanswered.

The union requests that the members be acknowledge via email or station mail.

The Department is working on additional staff to correct the errors and delays in getting our members paid correctly.

EMS SAFETY CAMPAIGN- The assaults on out members is on the rise.

We’re working on a public safety announcement campaign.

First, the Department will assist us with placing warning signs on trucks “Assaulting EMS Personal is a Felony”.

Second, we’re going to hit the radio airwaves, Hot 97 and 92.3 with a message to the public on assaulting EMS personal.

We have a lot of work ahead of us.

Together we will get there.

Be well, and look out for each other!
