Those of you who are members of the IAFF could I get a little basic info on it. also would like to hear the thoughts of those who aren't and why. I know normally unions can get to be pretty messy things in some situations.

Anyways just want to hear peoples thought on it. Thanks!

My Union has its ups and downs, advantages & disadvantages. About a year ago, I had an issue with my departments adminstration over a compensation issue. My Union rep was a big help and stood by me through the entire greivance policy. On the other hand, I felt they rolled & caved in during the recently County Executive election.

I try to attend as many of the union meeting as possible. Most months we are lucky to get a quarum for the meetings out of close to 1500 members. Of course the people that ***** the most about what the union does are the ones that never attend any meetings. Don't complain about the contract or neogations if you don't at least show up for a few meetings.

Ok now off of my soapbox.... Your union will be what ever you make of it. I am on our Safety Committee and the CISM team.

Any other questions, let me know.
