When was the last time you heard the whispers of arbitration caps? Chapter 78 being reintroduced? The Governor’s budget address and the state of the State address targeting public employees? I will tell you. It’s been almost 4 years. While reflecting back on the last administration nauseates me, it is imperative to never forget. We had zero relationships and contacts with the Governor’s office and most State agencies that affect our member’s lives were ordered not to take our calls. We were on the defensive more times than not with Legislation. Life was different and extremely challenging for our union during those times.
Unfortunately, over the years there has been confusing messages put out there about the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (“VCF”) and various deadlines that may or may not apply to you. In the last few months, many 9/11 organizations and VCF law firms have been talking about a deadline that is fast approaching, July 29, 2021.
So what is the July 29th 2021 Deadline and does it apply to you?
Location: Bill Pascrell, Jr. Fire Headquarters, 300 McBride Ave. in Paterson NJ
Date: June 21
The Office of Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. invites you to the 20th Anniversary celebration of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. Congressman Bill Pascrell authored and introduced the "Firefighter Investment and Response Enhancement (FIRE) Act," the first comprehensive legislation dedicated to meet the special needs of America's 32,000 volunteer, paid and part-paid fire departments. Since 2001, the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program has provided firefighters and first responders with the equipment and resources they need to protect our community. Please save the date and join us on this momentous occasion!
