President's Report

June 1, 2016

Negotiations: The last time the Union met at the Office of Labor Relations with the City of New York and the Fire Department was on or about April 20, 2016. The City and the Union came to terms on the language of the alternative work schedule (12 Hour Tours). The only outstanding issue was completing and agreeing on the economic package. Since then, both locals have costed out their economic demands and are ready to move forward in completing an economic package, which would be put forward to the membership. Our next date for negotiations is on June 10, 2016. We will keep you advised.

Legislation: On April 15, 2016 the New York City’s Actuary’s Office presented a fiscal note for our Fire Protection Inspectors 25 and Out Pension Bill. It was sent to Albany for the official drafting of the bill. The official bill with the attached fiscal note was delivered to our City Council for a home rule message. We continue to lobby the City Council for a home rule message. We hope to receive this home rule before the State Legislature finishes this year’s session. Our Chapter 96 Refund Bill is still awaiting a fiscal note. We will advise.

Membership Scholarship: The N.Y.S Honorary Fire Chiefs Association has offered the Union two $3,000.00 scholarships for members of EMS who are enrolled in college for the 2016 school year. Interested applicants should follow directions listed on our website or on the members update. The date of enrollment has been extended to June 15, 2016.

EMS Week: There were many great events during this years EMS week. I would like to thank everyone who went to Albany to participate at the N.Y.S Emergency Medical Service Memorial dedication ceremony to honor our fallen members.

Upcoming Events: Look out for this year’s annual EMS picnic. Information will be sent out to all locations when the information is available.

 I wish everyone a safe summer.

 

In Solidarity;

EMT Sal Turturici Benefit: This Thursday June 2, 2016 at the Liberty Tavern located at 382 Forest Ave, Staten Island, NY there will be a stand up comedy benefit show for FDNY EMT Sal Turturici who was diagnosed with 9/11 related cancer.  The Local still has tickets available for anyone that is interested in going to this event. If you are interested please let me know.

Time and Leave: Members are encouraged to notify the Department if they believe they are going to be out for an extended period of time.  If the reason you will be out is due to medical or personal issues, you need to contact personnel or BHS. Members can apply for extended sick leave, FLSA and a leave of absence. The Department will seek formal charges and / or termination for members who are AWOL.

BITS / CCU / EEO: Members are reminded that when reporting to BITS / CCU / EEO that they are to report in the uniform of the day, unless they are restricted. Members should not show up to BITS / CCU / EEO in the latest fashion trend.

EDP Calls: Members are reminded that PD should be responding to all EDP calls and you should be utilizing them as escorts. Too many members are being assaulted on EDP jobs and crews are cancelling them (55). Remember your safety comes first.

Enjoy your summer and be safe!

 

Sincerely,

Joseph Conzo
