Dear Members of IAFF Local 244,
As we embark upon the journey of preparing for our future negotiations, we invite each one of you to actively contribute to the shaping of our collective path. The upcoming negotiations in 2024 for our next Collective Bargaining Agreement with Bernalillo County mark a critical juncture, and your insights are invaluable.
To facilitate this process, we have attached an input form that seeks key information, including your name, the specific article at issue, and your recommended changes. For those proposing entirely new articles or substantial modifications, we kindly request supporting documentation outlining the necessity of the proposed changes. This approach ensures that your negotiations team is equipped with the necessary groundwork for both preparation and justification in addressing the requested amendments.
Our union's strength lies in the diversity of opinions and perspectives within our membership. Your input is not only welcomed but fundamental to the robustness of our collective voice. We encourage you to prepare and bring forth your recommended changes to our Collective Bargaining Agreement input meetings scheduled for December 4th and December 6th at 11:00 AM. These meetings will be held at our Union Hall, providing a conducive environment for thoughtful discussion and collaboration. A zoom link will be available for the December 6th meeting only and will be for viewing only. If you have article changes to present, we ask that you present such changes in person.
Your proactive involvement in this process is a testament to the vitality of our union. The commitment each member brings to the table contributes significantly to our shared success. We sincerely look forward to hearing from you, and collectively working towards an agreement that serves the best interests of all.
Thank you for your unwavering dedication and the invaluable work you consistently undertake.
Your Negotiations Team
