Dear May or Allen:
The Atlanta Ge orgia Labor Counc il, AFL-CIO, at regular
meeting on June 8, 1966, went on record to reaffirm
our position in support of the International Assoc iation of Fire Fighters Local No. 134, and as a voice of
Organized Labor in g re a ter Atlanta, to make our posi t ion
clear. The Fire Fig ht er s Local No. 134 , is t he only
organization recognized by the Atlanta Labor Council, AFLCIO, re p resenting Firemen in the Ci ty of Atlanta. The soc a lle d ind e p end ent union has no aff il i ation wit h the Atlan ta
La bor Council , AFL- CIO o r a ny other segment of the AFL - CIO .
We are in co mplet e s y mpat hy, and s u pport the res olutions
s u b mit t ed b y t he International Fire Fighters Local Union
No . 134, t o t he City of At la nt a Alder manic Boar d, r e questing be tter workin g conditions and more pa y f or t h e
At l anta Firemen , however , we wis h t o make clear that we
will not condone this ra sh, irresponsib l e action of this
so-called independent union.
The officials of the City of Atlanta are not without some
blame for this emergency. Had they been sincerely interested in the problems of the Firemen, which were presented to
them several months ago, they would have taken some positive
action and made some concrete proposal to remedy some of
these problems, however, they only saw fit to use the oldest
"dodge", a politician has at his disposal, "I-' 11 give it
due consideration".
�June 9, 1966
The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
We are a loss to understand why you have n ot seen
f i t to recognize, t hrough th e news media, the fact that
the International Associatibn of Fire Fighte r s Local No.
134, has been representing the Firemen of the Cit y of
Atlant a f or about forty years and duri n g this per io d of
emergency, the faithful members of Local No. 134 are working
around the clock to man th e fire stations in our c ity , with
the prime c ons id eration being the protecti on of the pro p erty
of the citizens of Atlanta.
The Atlanta Geo r gia Labor Council, AFL-CIO is available
at any time to assist in any way you may deem necessary in
this matter .
With best wishes and kindest pe rs onal regards, I am
