MEMBER ALERT 

Dear Members,

As many of you know, the department has posted a notice stating they will be ending the Coded Assign Hire program. UFLAC has been informed that the department will now revert back to the old Assign Hire system that can be found in the Manual of Operations (F590 Instructions). The recall process remains the same.

We understand that our members are working tremendous amounts of involuntary hours. This amount of forced work has become extremely unhealthy for many members and their families. While we realize that staffing issues are impacting fire departments throughout California and the country, we are doing what we can to come up with short-term and long-term solutions to address this crisis. Next week, we will be meeting with the department to discuss staffing issues in an effort to provide some relief to the members.

We will keep you updated with additional developments.

In Solidarity,

UFLAC Executive Board
