This has been accomplished by placing existing Fire Department personnel on overtime and by adding 10 additional men to the Fire Department complement. The 10 men added Thursday now give us a total of 254 Firemen. We were fortunate in having only 12 alarms during the night and none was of major import. Two firefighting units were required to move some 50 bales of damaged cotton from a cotton warehouse fire at 1088 Murphy Avenue. The City Construction Department was requested to assist by sending mechanized equipment to expedite the moving of the cotton bales and promptly responded to lend a hand to the Firemen.

  • Text: 10 Cher Atlanta Journal and CONSTITUTION * SATE By RALEIGII BRYANS A number — evidently a large number — of disgruntled Atlan- ta firemen have defected from their old union to join a new “independent” union that is ex- hibiting militancy and is seck- ing grealer wage gains for them. The new union is now pressur- ing city officials to recognize it as negotiating agent for firemen with -an apparent threat that firemen will take extraordinary action on their own if officials . do not. The union is Atlanta Firefight- ers Union, Inc., independent. Its attorney and business represent- ative, Robert L. Mitchell, voiced this apparent threat in a May 16 Jetter addressed to Alder- man W. T. Knight, chairman of the city’s Board of Firemasters. MR. MITCHELL stated that “if negotiations are not com- menced immediately, then the members of this union will have no choive but to promulgate their own working rules, which will be placed into effect im- mediately.” In the same letter, Mr. Mitch- ell gave Mr. Knight what was the first information any respon- sible city official had received regarding the nature of the wage and hour demands the new union is making. “Upon behalf of the Atlanta firemen,” wrote Mr, Mitchell, “we are willing to agree at this —time fo a 5é-hour week coupled “with a a $100 per month wage in- “erease for cach firemen on a “one-year basis.” “The dé@trand-for a 56-hour work week is not new. It was the major demand made at the start of 1965 by firemen when they were represented by their old union, Local 134, Internation- al Association of Firefighters, AFL-CIO. But brand-new is the new union's demand for a $100 per month wage increase.

The new union was formed, according to Capt. Martin, on April 19. This, judging by Mr. Mclver’s newsletter, must have followed a Local 184 meeting at which members expressed their disenchantment and indi- cated their plans to defect from the local. There have been persistent, but strictly unconfirmed, ru- -mors that Capt. Martin’s new union is oriented to the Team- sters Union. Hearsay has it that the Teamsters Union did send in organizers to lure firemen into a Teamsters’ affiliate but did not succeed in that. But fire- men may have had help from Teamsters organizers in form-': ing their “independent” union. That, again, is rumor. The disgruntlement of city firemen came to a head this year as they had for a number of years firemen at budget-mak- ing time had pressured the al- dermanic finance committee to shorten the fire Hepa.

The city’s present position has been laid down by Mayor Al- len’s administrative assistant, Ear] Landers. This position, quite candidly, is that city leaders do not share firemen's evident strong belief that they have been badly treated at the city budget table. This, interestingly, is a position taken by Local 134 Pres- ident Mclver in his April news- letter. MR. LANDERS (as did Mr. Mclver) details improved wage and other benefits which have accrued to firemen in the six- year period between in 1960 and this year. In_these_ six years, firemen have _ received fit. increment pay increases, These increment increases did not come in one a year, however. In 1960, they, together_with city policemen, were granted a_two-increment increase, while other city em- ployes got one. In_1 _1962_they got a second two-increment increase along‘ with all other _city employes. In 1965 and _again_in 1966, they benefitted from one- increment general increases. _The impact of the six recent. increment increases for pri- vates in the fire department]. was that their monthly pay rose from $403 in 1960 to $497 in 1966,-or 23.3 per_cent. In the same six years, firemen’s 25- year service pensions increased from $150 a month to $227.50, or 61.6 per cent. Their 35-year ser- vice pensions rose from $200 a month to $295.80 _a_ month, or 47.9 per. cent. Their line-of-duty disability pensions Tose $150 a month to $323.05 am or 115 per cent. And benefits on disability rose from $112.50 a $242.28 a month,. o cent again. MR. .LANDERS. the annual fire departm propriations from $3,765 1960 to $5,247,678 in 1966 aggregate of $1,581,734. 1 says, is the equivalent than one mill of taxation on the 1965 tax digest. cates the city feels it is ingful to local taxpayers the six-year $1,581,734 ine in outlays for firemen jes and pensions was without a tax increase. a RFOUD of fremer ed City Hall, that Mayor Allen and other city officials had giv- en the union the “old run- around” when it had sought rec- ognition. City officials contend this {is not'the case. However, they do make it clear that circum- stances are making it difficult for them to decide whether to recognize the new union. The old firemen’s union is vying to keep its position as spokesman for firemen. “This resolves itself into a contest between two groups who claim they are representing the members of the fire depart- ment,” says Mayor Allen. If the claims of its president are to be accepted, the new union has laid hold of a_ siz- able majority of the men in the fire department. Capt. Martin said Tuesday that 550 of 718 “eligible men” in the depart- ment are members of his un- ion. (Officially, thére are 726 firefighters.) On the other hand, the presi- dent of the old AFL-CIO fire- men's union has said in a news- letter published recently that “there will always be a Local 134, International Association of Firefighters,” and that the old union is still very much in busi- ness. RADIOMAN JIMMY McIVER disputed reports — reports ap- parently circulated by members a to per- suade aldern change their minds. They appeared at City Hall in great numbers when the finance committee accorded them a special hearing. But they were told, finally, on March 21, that the committee’s position still was the same — there just wasn't money enough available. They did get a solemn pledge from the full Board of Alder- men and Mayor Allen that,their request for a shorter work week will reccive first priority, above all other budget requests, when the city budget for 1967 is he- ing fixed this fall and winter. _WHAT FIREMEN demanded, back in January and_again_in March _ was-a-reduction_of_their work week from 60 hours to 56) hours_and_time-and-a-half over- time pay for-any_work they per- formed beyond the 40 hours that most other city employes work. This would have cost the city $1.1 million, according to City Comptroller Charles L. Davis. The finance committee's, and the city administration’s, posi- tion at the time was that the 1966 budget was the tightest in years. This was in large part the case, finance officials insist- ed, because the budget included -a_one-step pay raise for all city ‘|personnel — firemen included.. The firemen’s demands, said city officials, could only be met by raising the city’s ad valorem tax rate. This latter the city administration was unwilling to of the new competing union — that Local 134 has turned in its contemplate. “Pugh PAY “partment ‘hiv pay 'o $497 in “In the men’s 25- nereased ‘27.50, or sar ser- in $200 a ~onth, or ie-of-duty “se from a month, : widow's pensions month to OMS per |g ints out | { “imereases * boosted | the “ment ap- 9995 in “4. 0r an |p ‘ This, he |i ‘of more |¢ on, based ‘He indi- I ‘S$ mean- | ius that \@ag \imrease fy “S slar-| ’ ® realized newspaper advertisements have run, and in leaflets have distributed about vn, the firemen members of ew union have expressed bitterness not only with f0-hour work week but existing pay scales, no natter how improved since 1960. “If you were working 50 hours one weck and 70 hours the next for $1.55 per hour, you would do one of two things: Demand better working conditions or re- ign,” reads one leaflet. fhe $1.55 per hour figure is cited as a minimum, and else- where, $1.91 per hour is cited as the maximum.

Nonetheless, Mr. Landers — and here he speaks with full authority from Mayor Allen — sets out to put the firemen’s complaints in perspective. 1 — Low wages prevail roughout the city government, _that firemen, in this regard, re not in a unique position. As already indicated, firemen ac- ally fared better — six incre- ent increases to five — than bulk of city employes did he 1960-66 period. The city is acutely aware that it must im- ave city salaries generally or ‘ill not be in a position to mpcele with private enter- se for able employes. To this d, it has retained the Public inistration Service, a Chi- management consultants , to do a study of its salary iedules. This will be com- xd by this fall and will be as the basis for probable n other cities, a, in the Southeast, or the s a whole. The mini- ual salary of an Atlan- an is the highest of any orgia cities — Atlant. Colu s, Savannah, Albany, \ugusta and Macon. It is $4,641. The average for the six Geor- gia cities, with Atlanta’s fig- ‘ured in, is $4,163. The 60-hour | work week prevailing in Atlanta stands alone among the six cit- ies. In all the others, a 72-hour work week prevails. THE ATLANTA minimum also exceeds the average for 17 ma- etner in jor Southeastern cities (New Orleans, Atlanta, Birmingham, Louisville, Memphis, Miami, Nashville, Norfolk, Little Rock, Mobile, Montgomery and Rich- mond). The average for these cities is $4,316. Among these cities, four pay a slightly higher minimum than Atlanta, as fol- lows: Birmingham, $4, 716 (the highest); Miami, $4,- 680; Nashville, $4,680, and Nor- folk, $4,680. Seven of the 17 cities have a 56-hour work week for firemen; four, including At- lanta, have a 60-hour work week; the remainder have either 72- or 78-hour work weeks. In 13 of the 17 cities, firemen work a 26-hours-on, 24-hours-off basis. Atlanta compares less well with what major cities in its popu- lation class are doing. The cities, besides Atlanta, are Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Columbus, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Memphis, Minneapolis and Phoenix, The Atlanta minimum wage is the lowest. Seattle’s is the highest, $6,420. ‘The average || for the 11 cities, Atlanta in- cluded, is $5,410. A 60-or-better work week prevails only in Minneapolis (60), Memphis (72), Indianapolis (63), Denver (68), Buffalo, with a 40-hour week, is lowest, Seattle next, with a 48-hour week. Pittsburgh has a 52-hour week, the rest, a 56- hour week. _3 — Some general clarifica- tion is needed of conditions that prevail in the Atlanta fire de- partment. When one says fire- men work a 60-hour week, it does not mean they work seven days a week. Actually, firemen work five days a week, then take two off. Those on the day shift work 10 hours a shift; those on the night shift, 14 hours. Firemen who have the day shift one week will work the longer night || shift the following week. The five-days-on, two - days - off regime means, moreover, that firemen get 104 days off during the course of a year. And on top of that, they get 20 days of va- cation time and time off for sev- en holidays. In terms of the fact that they are off duty 131 of the 365 days in a year, they may be inaccurate in the way they have figured their hourly wages. For example, the $1.91 maxi- Wlrly wage cited in their! ght more accurately | 9 be $2.17. Firemen, in| re furnished free uni- at their fire stations, have quarters where they may sleep when there are no fire calls, and kitchens where on- duty-hour meals are cooked. 4 — It is untrue, as the new union has claimed, that 125 fire- men resigned from the depart- ment last year to accept better jobs elsewhere, Actually, 58 fire- men quit the department, and even so, eight of these were re- employed subsequently.

SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison NEWS RELEASE CITY HALL ATLANTA, GA. 30303 Tel. 522-4463 Area Code 404 STATEMENT BY MAYOR IVAN ALLEN; ALDERMAN WILLIAM T, KNIGHT, CHAIRMAN, BOARD CF FIREMASTERS; AND CHIEF C, H, HILDEBRAND, ATLANTA FIRE DEPARTMENT -- THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 1966, 11:30 A, M, More than 500 Atlanta firemen continue to refuse to report for duty as directed by order of the Fulton Superior Court and by the authorities of the City of Atlanta and the Atlanta Fire Department. The City Attorney's office has asked the Court this morning to cite the Atlanta Firefighters Union, Independent, and its principal officers, J, I. Martin and Leonard Styron, for civil contempt and failure to return to duty as ordered, The City of Atlanta has made every attempt to resolve the present dilernma with the members of the Fire Department rhrough these men who are the representatives of the striking firemen. We have done as much as is possible under the laws governing the City of Atlanta. The Union leaders and striking firemen have shown an utter contempt for the laws of the State of Georgia and the authority of the City of Atlanta, They have also shown a reckless disregard for the property and lives of the citizens of this city. We can no longer tolerate action which places in jeopardy the thousands of lives and millions of dollars of property which these men are under sworn oath to protect. Therefore, we are directing all employees of the Atlanta Fire Department who wish to remain as employees of the City to report to duty on their normal shifts no later than 8:00 a.m. Saturday. Failure to report will be considered a violation of the City's Civil Service Law and # will be used as the basis of charges to be preferred farinattention to or dereliction of duty. Employees failing to report will be suspended by the Chief pending the hzarings and action will be taken to fill those positions which remain vacant, We urge these employees to consider their responsibilities to the people of Atlanta and to their own families. Loss of income and the placing in Jeopardy of many years of retirement rights and other accumulated benefits is a serious and foolish gamble they are taking by refusing to return to their posts. The City officials have met with the leaders of the Union in good faith. These leaders have stated that they have asked the firemen to obey the legal authority of the Court and return to their stations but there has been no response to this. request from the Union leadership. Apparently, there are no lines of communications now open with Union authority accepted by its members, Capt. Martin and Capt. Styron apparently have no control over the striking members because their request has been ignored. These two men also have failed to comply with their own request and have not reported to their duty stations, We trust that the members of the Fire Department, many of whom have worked long years of dedicated serviceji will consider their responsibilities and obligations to the City, the laws of our State, and to their families and return to work as directed.

The fire call at 2 Broad Street Monday was answered in minutes. pieces of equipment with men answered the call. of the firefighters were new personnel, but they performed one hundred percent effectively under the direction of career, first line supervision and alongside loyal and experienced firemen of many years experience. The fire was brought under control in minutes and extinguished in minutes. There was never any danger of the fire spreading and it was under the complete control of the Atlanta Fire Department at every moment, The citizens of Atlanta will not be paniced by false and inflamatory statements that the city is in grave danger of burning up because of lack of firefighting personnel. This simply is not true. All stations in service, of 32, aee adequately manned and are supervised by the city's most experienced and dedicated firemen. New men are being employed and trained daily. Since the walkoff of some 500 firemen on » we have built the back firefighter staff fanix up from to The public should keep the facts clearly in their minds at all times. If there is a reduction in fire protection, it is the result of former Captain Martin and his followers deserting their posts, refusing the order of the Fire Chief and the order of the Fulton Superior Court to return to their jobs. It was Mr. Martin who refused to accept the city's action increasing pay and reducing hours January 1, 1966. It was Mr. Martin who refused to accept Dr. Harrison's recommendations and broke off negotiations with the Board of Aldermen. Mr. Martin and many other former employees of the City Fire Department failed to appear before the Board of Firemasters to even explain their actions or answer charges of dereliction of duty, failure to obey the order of the Chief or of the Court, The city had no further choice. They were fired as called for by the laws of the City of Atlanta. Since these men, by their actions, have chosen not to work for the Atlanta Fire Department, I call on them to refrain from continued harrassment of normal fire department operations and of the general public, and allow us ‘to rebuild the Fire Department with those men who desire to serve their city in this area of responsibility.

The City of Atlanta has in operation this morning 25 fully manned Fire Stations. The total personnel in the department has now risen to 357 -- 313 of these employees performing actual firefighting duties. Sixty-seven new recruits have been assigned to stations for in-service training and duty under the leadership of experienced Firemen and Fire Officers. We are able to maintain an on-duty shift strength average of 175 firefighting personnel because of extended work hours of those Firemen who have remained on the job. Our attempts to recruit new men to rebuild the Fire Department have been extremely successful. Since Labor Day the City Personnel Department has examined 327 applicants. abseil ae Bt Page Two 140 of these have passed the written examination and are being processed for in-service training and firefighting duties immediately. The Personnel Department is making plans to conduct a recruiting campaign throughout the Southeast and through the employment of new personnel and the extended work hours of our experienced personnel, we should be able to place the remaining unmanned stations in operation within a very short period of time. The Personnel Office at 260 Central Avenue, S. W. is remaining open until 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and until noon on Saturdays to receive and process firefighters applications. I am requesting all the citizens of Atlanta to practice good fire prevention measures in their homes, businesses, churches and schools. A check-off list is being released to the news media for self-inspection of your premises which, if conscientiously adhered to, can prevent fires and preserve property.

This has been accomplished by placing existing Fire Department personnel on overtime and by adding 10 additional men to the Fire Department complement. The 10 men added Thursday now give us a total of 254 Firemen. We were fortunate in having only 12 alarms during the night and none was of major import. Two firefighting units were required . to move some 50 bales of damaged cotton from a cotton warehouse fire at 1088 Murphy Avenue. The City Construction Department was requested to assist by sending mechanized equipment to expedite the moving of the cotton bales and promptly responded to lend a hand to the Firemen. The Chief further reports that a total of 493 Firefighters have now been suspended for failure to obey his order to report for duty.

  • Text: OM | September 1, 1966 DRAFT Dear Captain Martin: For the last five months we have been in almost constant communications in an effort to reach a satisfactory and equitable solution to the problems of pay and work hours of the members of the Atlanta Fire Department. The Board of Aldermen and its responsible committees, the Personnel Board, the Office of the Mayor, and an outside mediator have given full consideration and courtesy to you and your colleagues in the Fire Department in response to your requests for improvements in your working hours and pay scales. We have also given consideration to the plight of all city employees and took positive steps earlier in the year to produce adequate pay and reasonable hours for every employee through a comprehensive study of pay classification by the Public Administration Service. Page Two Further, we have of necessity and public responsibility, given consideration to the citizens of Atlanta, for whom we have a legal and moral responsibility to operate the City government within the framework of the legal and political charter and ordinances of the City. During this period of time, the citizens of Atlanta and the City government have been subjected to a serious and illegal walkout, sonstant public threats and intimidation of strikes and other unwarranted and undeserved charges by you and the Firemen you represent. In contrast, the City has observed at all times a dignified, sympathetic, honest and fair attitude toward the Firemen and their demands. In the illegal strike in June, the Fulton Superior Court ordered the Firemen to return to work, The order of the Court was ignored and it was necessary for the City government to ask for contempt | proceedings against the striking Firemen. At the request of the Firemen, the City agreed to withdraw the Court action without prejudice and with no recriminations. This agreement has been kept. At the further request of the Firemen, the City agreed to the joint appointment of an impartial outside mediator to weigh all the facts and make a recommendation on the basis of evidence, Dr, Edwin Harrison, Page Three the choice of the Firemen, was chosen and subsequently rendered an impartial report which you fully rejected, Following your rejection of the impartial report and recommendation, the full scope and authority of the City goeernment was put at your disposal. You have met with the Board of Firemasters, the Personnel Board, the Finance Committee and the Public Administration Service personnel consultants. They were all made available to you without prejudice and with full courtesy. I am firmly convinced and assure you that we have explored every avenue within the legal bounds of public authority to find the ways and means to assure the Firemen of the good faith of their elected government, In view of all the preceeding action it is my intention to proceed along the following lines if the Firemen remain at work in good faith until the City can take appropriation action following completion of the PAS report about September 15 and subsequent results in the new budget which will go into effect on January 1, 1967: Page Four i. Iwill recommend to the Finance Committee that emergency funds from the salary account balance be used to initiate hiring and training of additional Fire Department personnel on October 1, so that trained personnel will be available to implement the 56-hour work week on January 1, 1967. 2. Iwill further recommend that the balance of the excess salary account be utilized to implement a pay scale of one and one-half time for hours worked in excess of 56 hours per week beginning - October | and extending through the end of the year. I sincerely hope and trust that the Firemen will not take any overt action in conflict with their oath of office or with their moral responsibility to their city and against the legal order of the Court which has instructed them that they do not have the right to walk off their jobs or to strike. The Firemen do not have the right to strike against the public interest of this city. In the event of any strike proceeding, the City has no choice but to attempt to secure a restraining order and an order to return to Page Five work if a strike exists. Failure to obey the no-strike order would result in contempt proceedings. In the event this should happen the City shall immediately declare all vacated jobs open and attempt to fill them with qualified personnel who will accept their responsibilities and uphold their oaths to provide full fire protection to the citizens of Atlanta. I urge you to persuade the Firemen to remain on the job, help rebuild the morale of the Department and help those of us who are seeking an honest solution to thtdrproblem, find the means with which to resclve it. To those men who are not willing to follow a reasonable course, I would point out that it is their responsibility to advise the City of their intentions to resign and to submit their resignations at the proper time, giving the City a reasonable notice in order that a qualified replacement can be secured. I hope you and all the Firemen of Atlanta will accept your responsibilities and fulfill your duties in good faith as we seek a final solution, Sincerely,

SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison > Myr. Joseph Jacobs, Attorney Wigwam Building 160 Central Avenue, S. W. . Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Jacobs: have your letter of June 15. Though I have not been with the City during the whole of the twenty year period you refer to in your letter, my information is that the American Federation oi State, County and Municipal Employees has had a pleasant relationship with the City for a long time and a number of the City employees are members.. ) rH The resolving of differences between the City and its employees has not been difficult in the past. The Mayor and Board of Aldermen have always been sympathetic to the salary needs of City employees, as well as to hours, working conditions and other employee benefits. Iam sure you agree that we have made much progress in all areas. The ever present problem of raising sufficient income from public sources to enable the City to pay our employees what we would really like and what they deserve will always be with us. With the continued cooperation of the City employees and AFSC & ME, AFL-CIO, I am sure we can always make progress. We shall be pleased to continue to work as we have in the past fjith AFSC & ME, AFL-CIO, The Civil Service Act is in effect a strong contract between the employees and the City government, the terms of which are Mr. Jacobs Page Two June 29, 1966 spelled out inlaw. Wages, hours, employee benefits, including vacation, sickieave, life insurance, hospitalization insurance and retirement, are set forth in the City Charter or City ordinances adopted by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen under the procedures established by law. li is my understanding that the Personnel Board and the Personnel ‘ector always have been available to meet with the union's resentatives and to receive information concerning employee efits. ne assure me that their relations with representatives -AFSC & ME, AFL-CIO, always have been most cordial and that they will continue to be available to discuss with these sentatives any problems that arise in connection with imployees and any employee benefits proposed, I am sure that the City Personnel Director, Carl Sutherland, will be glad to work with you in the establishment of an orderly procedure to be followed. ; The City prefers for the unions to speak for their members in raking known to City officials iheir desires, suggestions and aspirations for the City and their work with it. This information is invaluable in enabling us to intelligently seek to improve the condition of our employees and to go to the public with the proper arguments in favor of increased taxation which continues as you know to be the source of municipal income. The City Personnel Department is the City's agency for such matters. Of course, the Personnel Board's recommendations will come to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen in matters involving pay and hours of work. Mr. Jacobs Page Three June 29, 1966 iate very much your letter and hope that this reply makes y clear to you the policy of the City. Sincerely, ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor TAT rifty cc: Personnel Board General Carl Sutherland Mr. Henry Bowden
