Township of Scugog and Fire Fighters Negotiate Collective Agreement

Port Perry - June 2, 2015

The Township of Scugog and the Scugog Professional Fire Fighters Association (SPFFA), the Association representing the Township's four full-time firefighters, have negotiated a four-year collective agreement. This agreement, which was within the Council's mandate, includes wage and benefit improvements for firefighters.

"We are pleased that we were able to reach a freely negotiated collective agreement with the IAFF and avoid arbitration," said Mayor Thomas Rowett. "This agreement respects the important role of our fire fighters and provides for labour stability".

"The parties worked together to address the needs of the community all the while continuing to address some important issues. We have shown that by working together agreements can be reached, avoiding arbitration which is costly to both parties and closing the wage parity gap that exists with our comparators," said Clint Walker, President SPFFA. "Our members play a critical role in keeping Scugog safe. We are pleased that Council recognized this with a collective agreement that includes clearer language and wage and benefit improvements."

The collective agreement includes changes to language to streamline the promotional process, some improvements to benefits, as well as retroactive wage increases and a future wage increase.

"In terms of the wage increases, we were in a position where there was a significant wage gap with other comparative fire departments. Had we not negotiated this agreement, we would have found ourselves in the costly hands of the provincial arbitration process with similar results. By freely negotiating this agreement, we save the costs of arbitration while having more say on the final outcome. We achieved this result in a professional and respectful manner with our local full-time firefighters and recognize the extremely important service they provide to our residents." Mayor Rowett acknowledged.

The new collective agreement was ratified by the IAFF Local 4679 on May 19, 2015 and by the Township of Scugog Council on June 1, 2015.

For additional information you may contact Mayor Tom Rowett at 905-985-7346 ext. 116 / email and Clint Walker, President SPFFA at
