    First of all sagesensei, you have no idea who has a CJO on this forum and who doesn't. Also, unless you personally have a PHD in English it's probably best not to start trashing others about reading comprehension. Others may cower to your hall monitor attitude, but I'm not about to.

    Here's the facts:

    Quote from the Union-
    "I have asked the Fire Chief to extend the current hiring list by one year and to continue with the aggressive entry-level hiring we have cooperatively been driving. He has agreed and we will continue to push to run towers until we are full." - per Union website

    Reply quote from HR (on the above union statement)-
    "At this moment, the Fire Fighter Trainee eligible list is still expired. Should the list be restored and candidates are sent conditional offers, candidates will be contacted by our Backgrounds Unit."

    Reads like a clear contradiction to me.

    As you speculate, it "COULD" mean a lot of different things. We're all hopeful. I choose to deal in facts as they're presented to me and not speculation. Can the facts change? YES!

    I totally get that the union negotiates for benefits, working conditions, pay, etc.- for existing firefighters and union members.

    Thank God, and good for all of us that the union wants more, and negotiates for more boots on the ground. Correct me though, please, if I'm wrong, but last I checked the union doesn't make that decision.

    Just tryin' to keep it real since it seems like HR just implied that the union's position on the current list is flat out incorrect.

    That's what I thought too. 'Towers', or lack thereof, are budget driven and needs driven.

    Seems like LACoFD would identify the need, L.A. County would approve the budget for the need, and then HR would work to fill the need.

    Again, not sure where the union fits in, other than to be a messenger.

    So the list is expired until we hear official word from HR.

    The department/union does not have final say as to when academies happen, or about who gets placed into them. HR does.

    Try reading it again, Sensei. HR and Union are saying two completely different things. Not even Joe Biden could figure this one out.
    Key words: should the list be restored.

    Pretty straight forward.

    Thanks! Very confusing right now with the union and HR and how they are on a completely different page.

    Yes. I sent a new CPAT card on Monday and they replied with confirmation of receiving the doc.
