STATEMENT FROM THE PRESIDENT
The St. John’s Fire Fighters Association, IAFF Local 1075 wishes to announce that it will officially endorse Dwight Ball and the Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador in the upcoming provincial election.
We take this step due to their written commitment regarding the implementation of Presumptive Cancer Legislation for Career Firefighters.
For almost 12 years the PC Government has ignored our call for Presumptive Cancer Legislation for Career Firefighters in this province disregarding both numerous entreaties from this Association and the recommendation of two Workplace Health and Safety Compensation Commission Statutory Reviews.
The Association’s frustration with the PC Government was not only brought on by inaction on their part, but also frustration due to the constant game of ministerial musical chairs that led to us having to repeat our presentations time and time again.
It is the Association’s position that we support Mr. Ball and his Liberal team due to their firm written position to implement this legislation for the betterment of the career firefighters of this province.
Doug Cadigan President, IAFF Local 1075 St. John’s Fire Fighters Association
