From the “Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey”….
The City of Brigantine, NJ has a serious union issue now. The City is planning to not replace retired firefighters and will not be hiring any new EMT/ Firefighters. You may see advertised statewide that the City is offering part time per diem EMT/Firefighter positions. These jobs would be in direct conflict with our union work. The jobs offer no health benefits, no pension and no job security.
There are plenty of cities that hire Firefighter/EMTs legitimately and with benefits and there are many areas where these types of opportunities are available with no conflict to our union work.
The PFANJ and its executive board are requesting that no PFANJ member, family member, or PFANJ supporter seek employment with the City of Brigantine or any city for that matter who attempt to cut firefighter positions and fill them with part-time per diem employees. Please help us protect our Brother and Sister’s jobs in Brigantine and statewide. Please pass this message to as many friends and family as possible.
