What's New at IAFF 1945
Dear Members of Local 1945,
The Union has completed the ratification voting for the 2019-2020 Collective Bargaining Agreement. We are pleased to announce that the members of the Bargaining Unit voted unanimously in favor of ratification with 100% of voting members voting to ratify the agreement. It is extremely exciting to see everyone’s overwhelming support and unification. The IAFF is celebrating its 100th year in existence this year with the slogan of “Progress through Unity” and we are definitely an example of achieving progress through unity! Thank you all for all you do every day in our community and for your unwavering support of each other. We have communicated our ratification results to Chief DeMint.
The PFA Board will consider the Collective Bargaining Agreement for ratification at their July 24 Board meeting. Once the PFA Board ratifies the contract, all terms and conditions of the agreement will take effect on January 1, 2019. We will be in touch with any other updates as they become available.
