Frank Lima Wins Historic Election

Former UFLAC President wins landslide election for

IAFF General Secretary-Treasurer

 

UFLAC Brothers and Sisters,

 

Former UFLAC President and current LAFD Captain II Frank Lima has won a historic election to serve as the next General Secretary-Treasurer for the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF). With his victory, brother Lima is the first LAFD / Local 112 member in history to win an election to serve as a principal officer with the IAFF.

 

In a crowded three-person field Frank Lima captured more than 70% of the vote, defeating a fire chief from the FDNY and the former Secretary-Treasurer of the Washington State Professional Firefighters.

 

Frank Lima served as the President of UFLAC Local 112 for four years from 2012 to 2016. For the past four years, he has served as the elected 10th District Vice President of the IAFF where he represented all professional firefighters in the states of California, Arizona, Hawaii and New Mexico in addition to the territory of Guam. In his role as the 10th District Vice President, Frank was instrumental in helping the LAFD receive nearly $26 million dollars in federal grants through the SAFER program and other FEMA related opportunities.

 

 

On Wednesday, March 10th, Frank was sworn in as the next General Secretary-Treasurer for the IAFF where he will be the number two principal officer in our international union representing more than 320,000 professional firefighters in the United States and Canada. At his swearing in ceremony Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Council President Nury Martinez, City Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, and Fire Chief Terrazas joined the UFLAC Executive Board to commemorate this very special occasion.

 

We wish our brother Frank Lima all the best and look forward to his continuing work to benefit the LAFD and Local 112 members.

 

 

In Solidarity,

 

Executive Board

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT WEBINAR

Tuesday, March 23rd 7:00-8:00 PM

 

 

Who hasn’t found themselves experiencing conflict from time to time, whether at home or at work? Take a moment and think back to the last conflict or two that you have been involved with… Was it with your spouse or significant other? Was it with your child or teenager? Or was it at work with your boss or a co-worker? As you know from your own experiences, conflict can be a very uncomfortable and challenging thing to go through.

 

Conflict Management is “the process of limiting or eliminating negative aspects of conflict while creating solutions to increase positive outcomes.”

 

United Firefighters of Los Angeles City, Local 112 and the Los Angeles Fire Department invite you and/or your significant other to join us for a webinar designed to help improve your understanding and increase your ability to navigate conflict in both your personal and professional life.

 

We will have a panel presentation led by subject matter expert Anita Avedian, MFT, along with Peer Support Team members Chief Nikki Brodowy and Captain Charles Boswell, EAP Director Nancy Mraz, and Director of Behavioral Health Dr. Steve Froehlich.

 

The Webinar will go live on Tuesday, March 23rd from 7:00-8:00 PM.

MOU #23 Amendment Ratification Results

On February 3rd – 5th, 2021, the UFLAC Election Committee conducted a vote on the proposed amendments to MOU #23 – which is our current UFLAC MOU that had been set to expire on June 30, 2022.

The votes have been tallied by the independently selected Election Committee members and the results are as follows:

92.5% voted to APPROVE the MOU amendment
7.5% voted to REJECT the MOU amendment

These results are now official, and the terms of the newly amended MOU #23 will go into effect immediately.

Thank you to all members who took the time to learn more about the proposal and cast their ballots. For those of you who didn’t have a chance to vote or to learn more about the key provisions of the MOU Amendments, please feel free to reach out to any UFLAC Executive Board Member to learn more about the details of this new agreement that was supported unanimously by your UFLAC Executive Board.

We want to give special thanks to the Election Committee members who took their own time to help with this process and ensure that there was a fair and transparent election. These individuals are: Chairman David Miranda, Co-Chairman Martin Gutierrez, Ian Soriano, Larry Lee, and Gerry Puga. Thank you for the critical role that each of you played in this process.
