Justin Madden, personal injury and business litigation lawyer with Justin Madden Law, spoke with America’s Work Force on May 10 to talk about firefighters fighting for collective bargaining rights.
Madden brought up the issue of the start time for firefighters at the Cleveland Fire Department’s 24 hour shift being moved up from 8:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. This does not sound like an issue, however, the fire chief made this decision on his own without discussing it with the firefighters in the department. He said that the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 93 objected to this and said that the firefighters in the department deserve to negotiate the terms of their hours themselves, instead of changes being implemented without any discussion. Madden said that the firefighters should be able to negotiate a contract with their fire chief where they negotiate important topics such as their shift times.
