I wasn’t surprised to see the county council object, via the Los Alamos Monitor, to our position (Los Alamos Firefighters’ Assoc. - IAFF Local #3279; “Union”) regarding our current conflict. What I was surprised to see was our own Fire Chief, Douglas Tucker, stating that ‘[Los Alamos County] deal[s] in facts and [the Union] deal(s) in emotions.” This couldn’t be farther from the truth.
That our own fire chief could be so bold to state for the record the status of our motivations while he negotiates against us – his own firefighters - just adds more evidence to the case I’m about to present. Please understand that, traditionally, a fire chief (union or non-union) will negotiate with his firefighters or will remain in a neutral position. Why? Because it poses a huge conflict of interest, and as you’ve seen first hand, leads us down the road of misinformation and misrepresentation.
