In a historic "first" for the department, the new Joint Committee met for the first time on Tuesday, January 5. The committee, described in Article 6, page four of the contract, is comprised of three representatives from management--Chiefs Dawn Clopton, Richard Davis and Brian Tanzola--and three representatives from labor: Chief Bob Nicks, Capt. Mark Schultz, and FF Kreig Phillips.
Several initiatives from the contract have 60-day deadlines, so the group is off to a quick start and is working hard. Let’s wish them the best as they work toward implementing our contract.
