What's New at Local 30



Brothers and Sisters,

Local 30 has designed a mobile app for both Apple and Android phones. Search the App Store or Google Play for “Cambridge Local 30”, “Local 30”, or “IAFF 30”. The app is synced with the website and will give the membership another outlet to receive up-to-date information and notifications at the convenience of your phones. In addition to the existing content from the website, some new key features on the app includes Shift Trade Requests and most importantly, faster/easier access to the Detail Availability and Shift Calendars. Local 30 will be utilizing Push Notifications in addition to the email blasts and text messages. (Please Note: Members must Allow notifications when the app is downloaded to receive them). The app is free and is also available to the public. There is a Member Resources section for the private union/department information. Your USERNAME and PASSWORD to access the Member Resources and Shift Calendar sections will be the same as it is for the website. To make it hassle free and faster to navigate for each future use, you will only need to enter your information upon the initial login. For new and existing members, it’s very important to update your information and notification options on the website in the User Settings. Please add your personal email and cell phone # to help maximize our communication efforts. Your info is secure and will not be available to anyone outside the L30 member directory! However, if you still have concerns, there is also an option in the settings that your email will not be viewable to the directory but can still receive notifications.  

Please contact me if you need to set up your login for the website. As always, please let me know if you have any questions, problems, or requests about either the website or the mobile app.


Thank you,


Lieutenant Brandon Hugh

For those of you who still visit our website, the Member Log-In was updated to active members only. The reason behind this change was for easier utilization and tracking of the new "Member Resources" notification features on the website and our new mobile app. The majority of the content will continue to be available wihout a password. Some of the non-sensitive items were moved to the main menu and others will have the password protection lifted for your convenience. Use the "Contact Us" form if you're interested in receiving a new login to have access to any specific Member Resources folders. 

Thank you for your understanding and we wish you all a long, happy, and healthy retirement!

Brothers and Sisters,

I am writing to inform you of some developments within the Local. The IAFF has approved our recent Bylaw changes as voted on by the membership. This approval was made on September 8th, 2015. The IAFF’s role in the approval of Bylaws is to determine that they are consistent with the IAFF’s Constitution and Bylaws. This process can sometimes take up to a month. After speaking with the IAFF Legal Secretary they were happy to expedite the process for us.

With this approval, and at the will of the members, your Executive Board acted on the provisions in Article VI, Section 1. President Haynes communicated with legal firms and the Executive Board has retained the services of Pyle Rome as General Counsel. Pyle Rome is a firm based in Boston. They exclusively represent Labor, and many of their clients are Fire Fighting locals from all parts of the Commonwealth. Your Executive Board has already met with a partner in the firm to discuss the upcoming bargaining process.

The Bargaining Committee has been selected. The first meeting of the committee took place on September 23rd. We hope to meet with The City for our first session in the near future.

The Executive Board position has been filled. A vote was conducted and Michael Dwyer won the election. We want to thank all of you who expressed interest in the Executive Board position. We look forward to your continued interest in the business of our Local.


Chris Haynes

President, Local 30


Brothers and Sisters,

I am writing to inform you of an Executive Board meeting that was held on Friday, 9/11/2015. The purpose of this meeting was to fill the position of Local 30 President. The Executive Board has the responsibility under our Constitution and Bylaws Article V, Section 9 to elect a successor to fill a vacancy due to a resignation in the middle of a term. 

Your Executive Board elected Christopher Haynes to the position of President. The Board subsequently had to elect a member to the position of Vice President. The Board elected Charles Anderson to the position of Vice President. Lastly, The Board elected Michael Francis to the position of Treasurer.

The actions of the Executive Board under Article V, Section 9 filled the Principal Officer positions. This leaves an Executive Board member position vacant at this time.

Historically, a vacancy to the position of Executive Board Member is posted. Any member in good standing shall be eligible for consideration. Your Executive Board is requesting that interested parties notify the Secretary in writing as soon as possible. This vacancy must be filled within thirty (30) days to be in accordance with the Constitution and Bylaws. The position must be filled by October 11th. We look forward to hearing from you.


Paul Morrison

Secretary, Local 30

The results for the By-Law Election have been posted in the Download Section in the Member Resources Section.
