President's Report

February 3, 2016

Contract Negotiations: On January 19, 2016 the Union met at the Office of Labor Relations with the City of New York and the Fire Department. We believe that the aspects of the Alternative Work Schedules have been agreed on. The City is interested in constructing all aspects of the AWS in a document. The Union had a initial in house costing meeting at DC 37 on January 25, 2016. On February 4, 2016 we will meet with the City’s payroll department to discuss other aspects related to a contract agreement. Our next contract negotiations meeting will be held on February 8, 2016. We will keep you advised.

Legislative: We continue to await our fiscal notes on our 25 and Out Pension Bill for Fire Inspectors and our Chapter 96 Refund Bill. Once this is accomplished we will work with the City Council again to ascertain possible Home Rule Messages. We will keep you advised.

Preliminary Budget: The union was informed on January 20, 2016 that our Mayor has included in his budget 1.9 M in FY16 and 1.4 M in FY17 for two EMS pilot initiatives both in the Bronx. First is a fly car model that consists of two Paramedics, one being a supervisor (LT). This is expected to bring down response times to segments 1-3 calls. Second will be five additional BLS ambulances that would run 12 hours each. This will help address the neighborhoods experiencing the heaviest call volume.

Additional Tours: In the Preliminary Budget the Mayor is adding 3.2 M in FY16, 3.9 M in FY17, 3.6 M in FY18, 3.7M in FY19 and 4.1M in FY20 for ambulance tours.
(15 Additional Ambulance Tours)
9 ALS tours to replace services that were privately operated in Queens. 3 New (BLS) and 3 new ALS tours for Rikers Island.

Last February the Preliminary Budget contained 45 New Ambulance tours for targeted area. In addition, 149 positions were added to EMD. Official Budget address will be on February 4, 2016. We will keep advised.

F.P.I: On Tuesday January 26, 2016 our Local was honored to participate in the Fire Protection Inspectors Graduation Ceremony held at 9 Metro Tech. Congratulations to the new 28 members of our Fire Protection group.

In Solidarity,

Israel Miranda

Vice President's Report

February 3, 2016

MOS Ronny Schaal:  I ask for everyone to take a moment and send prayers to the family of EMT Ronny Schaal that passed away this past weekend. EMT Schaal was assigned to the Academy and served 20 plus years on the job. RIP Ronny.

Beneficiaries: Members should be aware that nobody knows when life-changing events are going to happen and we all should be somewhat prepared. DC 37, FDNY, and NYCERS should all have up to date information with beneficiaries if you are married, re-married or get divorced, this information should be shared and updated.

Equipment and Uniforms: Members are reminded that all issued equipment and uniforms must be secured at all times. If an item is lost or stolen, notification must be made immediately and not a week later. Every member should have lockers for storage of equipment and uniforms. If there is any member that does not have a locker, please inform your station delegate so that it can be addressed.

Social Media: I will keep talking about this social media issue until all 4,000 plus members of this local realize that this job and social media DO NOT MIX! If you continue to post on social media racism, rape, domestic violence, making fun of your patients etc. you are putting your job on the line. Before you post something on social media, please ask yourself, Will my job be on the line for this post and is my post violating the social media policy that we all signed for?

EMD:  Members are reminded not to use their personal cell phones while on duty at EMD.  Members who need to be available to family members while on duty should have them call you at the following numbers at EMD

(347) 250-6362 Or (347) 250-6360

Sincerely,

Joseph Conzo
