MFD all,

***Just before 1400 hrs & 1800 hrs, we ask all members to log off of Telestaff while data is complied and saved. Members may log back in after 2 minutes.***

PO scheduling continues today. In seniority in rank, each member will be notified when they are the active bidder. Members on duty should select Paid-Off days using a department computer. When selecting Paid-Off days on duty, please make an effort to use a department computer to complete your auction bids. Double check that you are using the Auctions function under the My Telestaff folder. Members not on duty can make selections with the aid of PO Central or by using a personal computer or mobile device. Refer to #NN 2017-27.

Captains – 308-5758
Lieutenants – 308-5758
Heavy Equipment Operators – 308-5757
Firefighters – 308-5756

If you are making your PO picks from a personal computer or mobile device, the "psm.telestaff.net" website requires the "2257" code to access. If “psm.telestaff.net” does not show up in your address field you may have navigated to the general Telestaff website. By clicking on the “Launch Web Access 3” below the login fields, it will redirect you to the appropriate page.

We encourage all members to have filled out a PO preference worksheet clearly expressing their priorities to their company officer or assigned representative. The 2017 PO preference worksheets are available on the Local 215 website.

Second Round:
If you are making your PO picks from the "psm.telestaff.net" website (the TeleStaff login which requires the "2257" code to access), on your second round picks, after you select the "SAVE" button, you will see all of your first round picks in the box on the right side of the screen, with the first round picks highlighted in red with the phrase "Person not working over target period".
To complete your second round selections, you will need to utilize the "OVERRIDE" button. Next to the save button, select the "OVERRIDE" button and your picks will then be saved.

Please pass this information on to members off duty as well.
Please be prepared. Please be patient.

Thank you for your cooperation,

PO Central

please go to the document library page sign in and look for election policy change and contract negotiation change.

thanks

bill code



The Policy Committee met at Monday August 28th @9AM at the Union Hall. We discussed and unanimously passed the new Election Commission Policy. Also the Executive Board met on Wednesday September 6th and also unanimously recommended to pass.
We also are requesting a slight change to the contract negotiations policy. That also passed unanimously. Our suggestion is:
In paragraph 4, sentence 6 will be changed from “There will then be a secret ballot vote at the union hall after each special contract meeting for 4 hours.”
In the new revised edition changed to “There will then be a secret ballot vote at the union hall during each special contract meeting and for 4 hours following each meeting.”
The change essentially allows voting during the special ratification informational meetings and not soley after.
I am including the original contract negotiations policy and the revised edition, along with the new Election Commission Policy.
If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Policy Committee

Good afternoon,
 
I am heading up a firehouse t-shirt drive. These shirts will be sent to the Texas State Fire Marshal’s office, who is collecting and distributing department/firehouse t-shirts to Texas firefighters and their families that were directly affected by Hurricane Harvey.  If your firehouse would be willing to donate any unused t-shirts for this initiative, please put them aside on the joker stand or boss’s office (could be one in the same) and I will come around and collect them.  Any amount and any sizes are acceptable and appreciated.

 
Thanks,
Jimmy Casarez

Brian Cox Update

`This update is an appeal to the membership for more donation days. This message is from Brian himself.

It's hard to talk to everyone. Some people are FB people, some call or text, some follow caring bridge, so I'll do my best to update. Today is about a month since my stem cell transplant. I had a PET scan today and saw the doc. Didn't get the news I wanted. The scan showed spots of cancer almost the same as my last scan. So, the high dose chemo and stem cell transplant did not work. At best it kept things in check. So, 4th type of chemo that wasn't successful. On to # 5. Thankfully there's still some options but this is getting pretty old


As you have seen from Brian's update of his treatment he is still going to need some more days donated. He presently has till 9/10 before he runs out of donation days and will be forced to use accrued time off. He is getting close to his maximum allowed time in the donor program of 2080 hours and he is currently allowed (11) additional donation days. If we can find it in our hearts to donate (11)additional days Brian will be at the max allowed donor time. Brian and Shalon appreciate everything we have done for them, including the days already given. Brian is staying positive despite the setbacks he has encountered. There are still treatment options he can pursue and he will continue to battle. Brian also has a blog to post about his progress. You can find that link here.
If you have any questions, please contact me (or Brian - bricox79@gmail.com) .
Thank you
