IAFF: City of Wichita not treating firefighters fairly

Mark Woolbright, International Vice President for the International Association of Firefighters [IAFF] came to Wichita today, to address the City Council on anti-union actions taken by the City, against Wichita firefighters. Matt Shulte, President of Local 135, says Wichita firefighters are not being paid properly and face intimidation tactics from management. Jennifer Winn, candidate for Mayor, says she fully supports Wichita’s brave firefighters and that they deserve to have their grievances addressed by the Mayor and City Council.

City Manager Robert Layton says that the “City denies it is engaged in anti-union conduct”, but stopped short of directly refuting the points laid out by IAFF officials.
