Tentative Agreement on IAFF Promotions Local 929 (Attorney Phares) The Illinois Legislature passed the Fire Department Promotional Fireman's Act (HB 988) effective August 4, 2003. It is incumbent upon all Fire Departments in the State of Illinois covered by the Act to amend not only the labor agreement with the appropriate union group, but to amend the Fire and Police Commission rules with respect to promotions. The purpose of the Act is to make the required promotional process more objective and to remove some of the subjective procedures that were built into the prior promotional procedures. The City of East Moline and IAFF Local #929 representatives have been meeting for several months to negotiate an Interim Agreement, prior to the expiration of current agreement, so that we would have the procedures in place to institute promotions, as we required those promotions to take effect.

The City of East Moline and IAFF Local 929 have reached an agreement. As part of that process Ms. Diane Hosford, Chairperson of the Fire and Police Commission did attend those sessions, because it is important that the Commission agrees with all the terms of this agreement, since they are charged with the responsibility of administering the examinations and promotional process. The City of East Moline will need to amend the Fire and Police Commission rules to comply with the new agreement.

Chief DeFrance outlined the provisions in the agreement that was approved by the Fire and Police Commission, and IAFF Local 929 (See Attachment). Mr. Greg Elden Secretary/Treasurer of Local 929 was given the opportunity to address the City Council.

A motion was made by Alderman Puentues, seconded by Alderman Kelley to approve the Agreement as presented. Upon roll call the following voted in favor: Doose, Kelley, Teague, Heiland, Puentes and Moreno. Motion carried.
