For over 10 years, the union contract for Reno Firefighters has allowed them to have 2-to-5 times the DUI limit for illegal drugs and alcohol while on the job, with no consequences. Not ONE City Council member, NOR the City Manager, NOR the Fire Chief NOR any firefighters have publicly spoken out against this. Neither the Washoe County Firefighters nor the Reno Police have similar clauses for tolerating drugs/alcohol on the job, nor does ANY fire department in the nation that we know of. No one benefits from allowing the policy to remain in effect.
Why do the City Manager, the entire City Council, the Fire Chief and 100% of the Reno firefighters refuse to speak out against this outrageous and dangerous contract provision, and insist that it be changed to conform with contract provisions for Reno’s other public safety workers?
QOL-RENO’S SOLUTION FOR SOLVING THIS PROBLEM
• Contact the City Manager, Council, and Fire Chief with calls, emails, and newspaper letters/op-ed’s demanding that this policy be changed.
