Anyone care to talk to me about the Firefirghter union IAFF? I have to make a choice on it in the future and want to know what I am getting into... Im not too keen on the 80 bucks a month they will pull from my check (not sure if this is exact...but I seem to remember a buddy getting $40 taken per 2 week pay period). I know there is a lot a peer pressure to join, and I heard almost everyone does, but what are the negatives of not joining? Benefits of joining? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
