FW Firefighter Charities Helmets for Heroes
Disciplinary & ERP


Nobody plans on finding themselves on the receiving end of a potential disciplinary suspension, but knowing what is required of you, and more importantly the assets at your disposal, will help guide you through the process.  First, let’s talk about incidents requiring action by an employee.

As stated in Article 21 of our contract, “A firefighter shall notify the chief or his designee through the chain of command within 48 hours of the firefighter’s arrest for a Class A or B misdemeanor or felony; official charge for a Class A or Class B misdemeanor, felony indictment; and the conviction, acquittal, or dismissal related thereto.

Depending on the circumstances and violations, a Preliminary Investigation, or a Formal Administrative Investigation, may be initiated.  440 encourages any member to contact one of your 440 Disciplinary Representatives in such cases.  The earlier we can get involved and make sure everything is done properly and timely the better the outcome will be.

Your disciplinary representatives are:

BFP   Craig Ladkin


16A   Cade Cornish


17C   Don Westmoreland



For most of us, reading our paycheck is, at best, a challenge.  For the rest, consider yourself fortunate.  So what steps should be taken when you think your check is wrong? 

You will need more than one paycheck to determine whether or not it is correct (you can view paychecks on the City’s intranet at It usually takes the last 3 paychecks before the one in question.  There is a lengthy video on the FWFD Intranet site that may assist you (Training: ERP Video).  This may help you figure out how to better read your check.

If you think your paycheck is incorrect, the proper channel would be to contact your “time keeper” which should be your Battalion Chief.  If there is still a concern, the BC will then, more than likely, send it to Fire Administration for further review. 

If at this point you still do not think you have been paid correctly you need to get in contact with Local 440, so we can figure your check and take the most appropriate action to make sure you are paid correctly. Michael Glynn and Ryan Zelazny are going to be the contact persons for paycheck errors. You can reach them by email at &, or by cell phone at 817-721-4425 (Michael) & 817-538-4701 (Ryan).
