How do Legislative Measures affect me?
Updated On: Mar 25, 2011
Make sure to log in and check the "Legislative Updates" link as often as possible. The AFFI and Local PAC provides updates on a very regular basis. Topics range from nearly every aspect of our job, affecting all of us!

Most Local 50 Members donate money on a voluntary basis to the IAFF PAC.  Often times, our membership (including donors), will get a bit restless during the PAC report at union meetings.  "I signed up to hop on a fire truck and go help people," is the general thought, followed by, "what's all this business about politicians have anything to do with what I do?  I just want to do my thing and go about my life.  Can't we just focus on the job?"

These are all legitimate points and questions.  Under the Legislative Updates link, and most of the News Feeds links, you will find the answers as to why we choose to become involved. 

In good times and in bad, we are fighting for maintenence and the improvement of working conditions, wages, staffing, pensions, promotions, living conditions, and benefits, to name a few. 

A sincere Thank you to those that donate!  We have what we have mostly due to the hard work and thankless efforts of those that came before us.  When we leave, we hope the next generation takes the ball and makes this wonderful profession even better.
