Around 1971, Greenville Fire Fighters all joined the International Association of Fire Fighters. Soon we asked for and received the recognition as the bargaining agent for fire fighters in Greenville. This came on the heals of two consecutive years with the city giving us a $1.00 a week raise and the cost of living raising substantially more than that.
Because we stuck to our guns and maintained our integrity, all city employees in Greenville enjoy a comparable wage to other municipal workers in our area and City enjoys a good relationship with it’s employees. Gov. Kasich seeks to destroy that situation by the passage of Senate Bill 5. Make your voice heard. Call, write or email your senator or representative in Columbus and tell them no on SB 5.
Don’t try to fix something that isn’t broken.
