Airdrie Fire Department Collective Agreement

”I think I speak for the community when I talk about the trust we have in our firefighters who are delivered here, and part of the reason we can count on the fire and rescue services is that there is a good and strong relationship between the front staff, the administration and the union.” Mr. Borrowman said. Editorial comments: Availability call: $2 per hour; defined as a pre-planned emergency response plan. Online death: The employer agrees to contribute up to $5,000 to the costs incurred to provide service to active firefighters whose death is due to the work they do on behalf of the employer and which the Workers Compensation Board of Alberta (WCB) considers compensable. Service payment: $600 after 10 years of service; $800 after 15 years of service; $1000 after 20 years of service; $1,200 after 25 years of service; $1400 after 30 years of service. Rates are for first-class firefighters to increase their salaries by 2.2% in 2018 and by an additional 2% in 2019 and 2020. ”Due to the extreme fire conditions, the building suffered significant internal and external damage,” says the communication, which also severely damages the siding of an exterior wall outside the neighbouring house. ”We believe this agreement is a fair matter for both the employer and our firefighters,” Rogers said. ”They are not the highest paid in the province, but it reflects the size of our community.” Sick leave: 12 hours per month, 144 hours per year maximum for firefighters; 8 hours per month, a maximum demarcation of 86 hours per year for non-oppressive workers.

A fire in the Luxstone area provoked a reaction from the Airdrie Fire Department (AFD) on March 18. ”Extreme heat and flames from the fire threatened to spread to a nearby house,” the statement said. According to the city, firefighters not only fought the flames, but also rescued a cat from the house and managed to resuscitate with oxygen. As part of the contract, new criteria have been created to define an unqualified firefighter and a qualified firefighter, so that the city can pay bonuses when a firefighter is required to act as a captain to cover training, sick leave or leave. On arrival, firefighters encountered a two-storey building with heavy fire and smoke conditions.
