Reply to Proposed Pay Scale
Updated On: Aug 24, 2015

To All Members:

Management has produced their pay scale and presented it today.  Once again, this is an attempt to force an ill-advised and not mutually agreed upon pay scale upon the body.  IAFF L574 will not address the specifics of said pay scale.  The city will address the specifics for this document on August 21st.  But know this, this document does not address forward movement and is a one-time pay increase.  The only movement from that point will be on the city’s good faith. 

Our action is to continue the course and proceed with the motion to adhere to the guidelines of the contract and move forward with the impasse procedures.  L574 has had heavy dealings with elected officials and we are very encouraged by what we’ve found and the support. 

L574 has reached out to the Central Labor Council and they have been by our side walking through this process.  The International has made contact with the American Federation of Labor on our behalf and they want to fight with us.  SCMPD is being affected by this pay scale as well.  We have been contacted by them in regards to standing alongside us during this negotiation and we gladly accepted.  They will march with us and stand with us at City Hall. Public Safety now has one voice in Savannah.

Members, this is a tedious process and we must continue to be steadfast in our efforts.  We are on the precipice of something immense and we must band together and keep our eye on the prize.  August 20th, 2015 at 1:00 pm in Johnson Square, your Union needs you.  We need to be 100 strong at Council and ready to deliver our message.  The city management will not infringe upon our Civil Rights and our workers’ rights.  See you all August 20th.
