   Official Statement:
   Manhattan Beach City Council and the Manhattan Beach Firefighters’ Association Continue Negotiations
     ( PDF )
   FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
   MAY 2 , 2022
    
   Manhattan Beach City Council and the Manhattan Beach Firefighters’ Association Continue Negotiations
   After fifteen months of negotiations , the City Council and the Manhattan Beach Firefighters’ Association ( MBFA ) find themselves at impas......se . Impasse is a step in the negotiations process and a part of the City’s efforts to reach an agreement . The City and the MBFA will still have the opportunity to reach an agreement throughout the impasse process .
    
   The City Council continues to desire an agreement with the MBFA and remains committed to ensuring that any labor agreement addresses its key priorities of preserving and enhancing local fire services , increasing consistency in management practices across City departments , improving decision - making autonomy for management , and allowing for an increase in Fire Department staffing . While the City Council hoped to come to a balanced agreement , the Association has been unwilling , to date , to accept the following significant proposals:
   
   Reduce overtime
    by modifying the constant staffing provision in the MOU to allow the City to hire additional firefighters;
   
   Enhance fire services
    by hiring specialized fire prevention employees;
   
   Increase consistency across City departments
    by requiring vacation be managed and pre - approved by Fire management; and
   
   Align compensation with other fire agencies
    by adjusting the amount of paramedic pay for future employees who later promote to Fire Engineers and Fire Captains ( positions in which the primary function is not the direct delivery of emergency medical services ) .
   Additional information regarding the City’s proposals are outlined in the
   City Council’s Official Statement on Fire Negotiations
    .
   While this labor dispute is unfortunate , the City Council would like to assure the community that the on - going negotiations will not affect the quality and response time of fire services . It is illegal for fire employees to strike per the California Labor Code . In addition , the City Council is not considering contracting out fire services with the Los Angeles County Fire Department ( LACFD ) , and has not discussed pursuing LA County Fire options since 2019 . The City Council remains committed to supporting the public safety response . The City’s proposals in the negotiations will not negatively affect MBFD’s emergency and medical response to the community .
   Please contact the City Council at
   CityCouncil@manhattanbeach . gov
    if you have any questions or comments .
