Support the Federal Fire Fighter Flexibility and Fairness Act
The IAFF’s federal fire fighters are engaged in a big push to garner support and co-sponsors for HR 1141 (Representative Sarbanes (D-MD).
This cost-neutral federal legislation, also known as the Federal Firefighter Flexibility and Fairness Act, resolves trade time inequities for our nation’s federal fire fighters. Specifically, the bill ensures that federal fire fighters have trade time parameters similar to those provided for municipal fire fighters under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations.
Currently, 34 members of Congress have signed on to HR 1141 as co-sponsors, but more are needed in order to keep this bill alive and moving this year. To make this happen, federal fire fighters need your help!
