    Right, and my point was that working PT as a FF in and of itself may not be an issue (IAFF wise) if doing so at a non-union department, but could very well be an issue if working at another IAFF Local's department as a non-union PT FF.

    (The first time I ran aross it was when my sister took a part-time job at a retail chain store. The union served as the bargaining unit for all employees -- part-time and full-time -- but part-timers weren't eligible to join the union. They were also required to pay an agency fee to the union.)
    Interesting.

    That's not really "dues" but what's usually referred to an an "agency fee." It's limited to covering costs directly associated with negotiating the contract, handling grievances, etc.

    I know of a couple of career departments that don't require membership in the Union, but they do require non-union members to pay dues in order to work under contract. I know a couple of guys pay the dues without belonging to the Union.

    Yes. When part-time FF's were added into my department, we made sure that they were included in the bargaining unit and Union.

    PM me if you have questions.

    Not unless the rest of you want to be part time too.
