|COVID-19 Member Lodging|
Local 3631 Brothers and Sisters:
The OCPFA IAFF Local 3631 Executive Board understands and is compassionate to these trying times that you the members, us as an executive board, and all our families collectively are going through.
We have tirelessly expressed the need for precautionary and mandated lodging outside of the home for our members to the OCFA for over two weeks. It is the opinion of our legal counsel, Adams, Ferrone and Ferrone, that our employer, the OCFA, should bear the financial responsibility of these lodging accommodations. Your Executive Board is fighting daily to secure this for our members.
Until an agreement can be made with the OCFA, the OCPFA Executive Board has secured a block of rooms free of charge at the Knotts Berry Farm Hotel (which is currently closed to the public) for Local 3631 members in good standing. We hope to have the rooms available by Monday, March 23rd. We are also in contact with a few other hotels who are offering rooms at a discounted rate (See information below). We will continue to keep searching for deals and options.
If you are interested in a room at Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel or have any questions regarding discounted lodging please contact Director Joe Sinclair firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please feel free share any resources you know of that can help the membership.
