MAFF Representatives believe there is more to a union than just negotiating wages and benefit improvements. Equally important is the protection of members’ rights and their jobs.
Today public safety workers face many threats to their employment from municipalities looking for ways to cut costs. Protecting union jobs from privatization and downsizing measures is just one of the ways MAFF is watching out for its membership.
MAFF also steps in when members are accused of wrongdoing on the job. Public safety workers know these accusations can quickly result in criminal charges. MAFF offers legal services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. MAFF attorneys can assist with Garrity statements when it matters the most. And there is no additional cost to members for this invaluable service.
