Q&A: FW fire commission candidates share views/Question 8
Fire Commissioners need to maintain a good working relationship with the
Union. It must be remembered that the Union was created to protect and aid
the firefighters. The commissioners are there to protect the fire district
as a whole, including the firefighters. With the right commissioners, there
are few times where those come into conflict. When conflict does occur, the
two must work together to ensure that the final decision is what is best for
the the fire district.
The Chief officers and commissioners have to work together to set the direction for the department. They need to collaborate and try to meet each others goals with the publics interest in mind. The commissioners need to be open to the unions and the Chief officers concerns. We need to continue building a team. The commissioners, Chief officers and union are on the same team and must work together to solve their problems and continue to provide excellent public service.
