Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join the IAFF?

Any full time fire fighter in suburban Jefferson County can join the IAFF.  See your department representative for enrollment information.  If your department does not have a union representative, you can contact either the Executive President  or the Secretary/Treasurer for a registration card.  The current cost for joining is $60, which includes a $30 initiation fee and the first month's dues of $30.

Why do the County Fire Departments not have contracts?

The individual Boards of Trustees for each district do not recognize the IAFF as a bargaining agent for their professional fire fighters.  But, until a Board of Trustees recognizes us or a collective bargaining bill is passed in the near future, there are still many benefits to becoming a Local 3972 Member.  We are able to provide support, guidance in disciplinary issues, training opportunities, and comradery to our members.  We will continue to strive to obtain collective bargaining, which will help give all firefighters in Jefferson County access to the rights and fairness we all deserve as public safety employees.

Who is eligible to have a department representative?

Any suburban Jefferson County Fire Department with 3 or more Local members is eligible to have an elected Local representative.  The members of each department eligible are responsible for electing their rep.  For more information, contact the Executive President or the Secretary Treasurer.

Where can I purchase union apparel?

All union merchandise is housed at our union office located at 133 Evergreen Road.  Contact any Executive Board Member to set-up a time to meet there.

When is the next meeting?

The Board meetings are open to all members and occur bi-monthly.  Meeting dates are set by the Executive Board.  Check out our Home Page for the next scheduled meeting date and other upcoming events.
