In the Spring of 1984, the AFFI passed the Collective Bargaining Bill out of the Illinois House, but came a mere ONE vote short of passing it in the Senate. It passed both chambers in October 1985; a perfect example of how one election cycle can make a huge difference.

June 30, 1985 all Bensenville Fire Department members were summoned to a Very important negotiations meeting in the basement of Bensenville Station #1 on York Rd. Our “negotiating” team told us, “this offer from the village needs to be signed tonight and slipped under the front door of village hall before midnight or the fire department will be restructured in the morning and we won’t need at least half of you.” It’s too late to contact an attorney, too late to talk to anyone. We signed it. I was brand new on the job, hired February 8, 1985. I was scared for my job. I’ve been retired from Bensenville for almost 10 years and still pay union dues. I believe in the AFFI and IAFF.

We would never have what we have today without this. Collective bargaining was the most pivotal piece of legislation for Illinois firefighters and paramedics
