Thanks for trying to engage the membership of the IAFF. Without your provocative dialogue, it would continue to be â€œbusiness as usualâ€ for Harry and the Huppets. Even still, they believe that no one will notice or question actions like tabling a motion to simply review a policy that has been shown to be inadequate to provide itâ€™s intended purpose. Hopefully their inaction will give rise to a groundswell of support for Resolution 10.
Unfortunately, too many (at least 13) of the 16 DVPs will direct their locals to oppose Res 10 for fabricated and incorrect reasons. They will rule just as they are ruled and punish those who would dare to question their decisions or directions (to better serve their corporate-minded master).
Donâ€™t give up on us â€“ you are creating conversations â€¦ Transparency, if you will. Good will come from continuing the discourse and heightening the awareness of the masses. From them will come the pressure on leaders to do the right thing â€“ even in the face of intense pressure from on high.
Thank you again for shining a light in the blackness of the dark halls of 1750.
