Tucson Fire Foundation shared International Association of Fire Fighters's status update.
LABOR History: At the dawn of the 20th century, fire fighters worked 84 hour weeks and 24 hour shifts, with only a few hours off. Fire fighters lacked the safety equipment they have today and multiple fatalities were common. Like factory workers, fire fighters were still considered unskilled labor. Salaries were low—29 cents an hour—and few cities had pension systems or assistance for widows or dependents. Promotions were based on who had the most political influence. Vacation time was dependent on the shortage of manpower at that station. In 1906, a resolution was submitted to the AFL for fire fighters to be able to organize locals across the country, marking the beginning of the IAFF, a separate union for fire fighters. In 1918, the IAFF was founded.
