He was a Captain, not a Chief. Still would be part of IAFF union
in 2017 he made $137,419[/quote]

ok still grossly overpaid when you look at hours of actual work look at a OR nurse and the years of university
and they actually work 8-10 hours a day and they make $under 100K

He's back on the gravy train. With the fat pension waiting for him. Where is the dispatcher now?

The way they get away with this is by having the fire rescue truck (4) people leave many times at the same time as an ambulance and most times they do not even get out of the truck. This accounts for 10-15% of their calls and takes the truck away from its main purpose fighting fires.
Now they want to have full time fire fighters at Ok Landing and how much are we paying for those that work at Predator Ridge. Try and get a yearly report on any departments from the city like pulling teeth.
Good way to save money cut the wage budget of all departments and get rid of all the extras that these unions get and I bet we could save enough to stop any tax increase.

SO bloody what?

Two consulting adults were having sex in an area where they might be seen. Who hasn't? That just adds to the excitement of the moment.

What next? Having sex in a position, other than missionary?

Nothing more to this story than getting caught nude sunbathing.

I disagree.

What do you think the uproar would be like if 2 CUPE City employees had been caught in the act? While on shift of course.

Like, these are the ONLY two "CUPE City employees" that have been screwing "While on shift of course".

They are the only two that have been caught......having sex.

The taxpayers get screwed every day by CUPE workers, it's the sex issue that makes this different.

One was IAFF. But regardless.

I still stand firm that the original discipline was correct.
In today's society there are less and less consequences.

The firefighters union then fought the termination, saying there should be no discipline because the privacy of the two employees was violated when the cameras were installed.

The arbitration board ruled that while harsh discipline was appropriate, termination seemed excessive.

One of the three members of the board concluded that termination should be the outcome.

The city says it is currently considering its options to further appeal the reinstatement decision.

Come on people... lets make someone accountable for his stupid fun at work....
Perhaps the union will ask the City to supply condoms and toys for each fire station when the yearly budget time roles around...lol hehehe

Hopefully the city sticks to their guns and say .. sue us and see how long we can prolong this gong show.... only if he is not getting paid in the mean time...which should be the case...!!!

How the :cuss: (pun intended) is this not misconduct and grounds for immediate termination. The workplace is for doing one's job, not each other.

The City lost and the arbitration, The City lost at the Labour Relations Board hearing. Maybe just maybe the news everyone on this forum seems to actually believe doesn't have all the facts on the case. Did everyone on this forum attend the arbitration? Read the LRB appeal? Do yourself a favour and get all the facts to a case before laying judgment. When you hear the word sex is that automatically make one think of full on intercourse? I seriously shake my head at even the comments about annual wages …… You know the posted wages include overtime right? If you really worried about overtime, lobby your council to ban all firefighter overtime and put your own house out or do your own cpr etc. I'm really surprised how not one reporter or rocket scientist in this forum has yet to ask the city for the total amount of tax dollars spent continuing to fight two losses they have already been dealt. I guess the city is always right no matter what legal systems are in place to hold employers accountable as well.

Her: EI in Mexico? For how long does that last? Maybe a year. Unless she gets caught.

Him: back on the gravy train. With the fat pension waiting for him. Even if the city refuses to let him work, he'll drag this out for years in the courts...... and get his money in the end.
