Schaitberger and IAFF Board Named Today’s New York Times reported how Harold Schaitberger and the IAFF executive board are plundering our union under the guise of doing IAFF business as if the only way to advance the cause of professional firefighters and paramedics is to recklessly spend dues money.

Ole’ Joe Just last week IAFF Vice President Sandy McGhee was quoted in a New York Times piece revealing that the long-contemplated  Hillary Clinton endorsement was, in fact, stillborn.

Entry Img

Two Engines and a Truck Company IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger’s annual compensation is at least the equivalent of the combined average pay of fourteen firefighters, staffing for a two-and-one assignment.

IAFF Corruption: When Walker Wins

Outside the IAFF Bubble Think of the IAFF “Bubble” as Pyongyang in DC. IAFF HQ and those dependent on Schaitberger’s largesse operate in a sphere where information is refracted through the lens of a narcissist. Our Dear Leader and his scribes sculpt the response to all matters IAFF to the point that they believe their […]
