Every shift has done a rotation. Much to my surprise C - shift likes the schedule but the guy on A - shift that pushed for the trial period has declared it a disaster and my fault or sending him a link on the 48/96.

This is the same guy that pushed us towards the IAFF two years ago. He organized secret meetings with the other guys up to the point that a Official vote of all the guys had to be recorded. He then told me that the guys wanted to join the Union and since I was the senior paid guy it was my job to approach the District Board.

They kept me out of the loop because my Brother is the Chief. I had no idea that the guys were talking to the IAFF until right before the Board meeting.

The board said we were welcome to join the Union but they would not recognize it. We opted for a "Memorandum of Understanding" instead of the IAFF.
