IAFF Fights Back to Defend Members' Pensions and Other Benefits
Updated On: Mar 05, 2011

Across the nation, the assault on fire fighters' pay, pensions, health care and other benefits has escalated in recent months, and the struggle is likely to worsen as public officials at all levels of government continue to demonize fire fighters and paramedics and blame them for the fiscal shortfalls and unbalanced budgets.

In response, the IAFF is developing a multi-pronged public relations and media campaign to defend our members from these attacks from all corners on multiple issues.

“These are real threats,” says IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger. “Our opponents have made it clear that they will continue targeting us. But we are ready to fight the battles like never before.”

In the last few days, the IAFF has submitted editorials to
USA Today and The Wall Street Journal to counter the anti-worker lawmakers and Wall Street bankers who want to convince the nation that fire fighters are the problem.
