Brothers and Sisters,
Starting last week and culminating yesterday morning, We received information that there were systemic problems regarding the elections of Local F33 Officers and Trustees.
To this end, We have suspended the elections and notified the committee to take no further action in the process until such time an investigation from the Department of Labor is complete and we receive guidance and direction from the 16th District Vice President and General Counsel of the International Association of Firefighters.
We have scheduled an Executive Board meeting of Local F33 for Monday May the 7th and will hold our normally scheduled general membership meeting on May 8th and 10th.
We want to assure EVERY Member that this issue is being handled in the highest regard and that full consideration is being given. The sensitivity and absolute need for transparency is paramount to a fair election process and We assure you that this will be accomplished and EVERY Member's voice and vote will be accounted for.
Thank you for your understanding.
Mike Massone, President
IAFF/CPF Local F33
