Fire Safety Officer Demand to Bargain (URGENT)

Brothers and Sisters of AFSCME Local 1368:

                         The Department plans to implement a revised version of their Fire Prevention Policy. The Department will require every Unit, Building, and/or District Office to have a "Fire Safety Officer (FSO)" as listed on the attached policy. The impact of this will affect a lot of our members with an already heavy workload. We, as your Union and on your behalf, demanded to bargain over the impact of this policy due to how greatly it would affect the members of Local 1368 (See Attached Letter). The Department agreed to bargain and our first meeting was held on October 6th, 2015. Our next meeting will be held on October 22, 2015 and we need your help! Anyone who is currently in this role or any of you who have feedback or concerns please contact us! There is a lot being put on the Fire Safety Officer in this policy and we need your help to make sure it can be done.

Thank you,

In Solidarity The Executive Board of AFSCME Local 1368.
