Re: “Black firefighters file human rights complaint

As someone who knows this workplace very well I can make one comment. City Council does not want to know about the fire service. If they were to survey the firefighters, they would find they have a major problem and they don't want to know. As far as racial and sexual discrimination, it does exist, but it is the few rather than the majority. The problem is that the few aren't dealt with properly because they (Management) don't understand basic motivational concepts.

Two things would return astonishing results and would both point out the same problems. (Most of the names of these problems have already surfaced.)

1) A financial audit of spending. It's very common knowledge as to how money has gone into some questionable pockets. (Have an auditor ask almost any firefighter what to look for and it is simple.)

2) A survey of employees regarding management practices. This would show the accusations of the former chief are very close to the mark.

The half dozen major problems all have enough time in to easily retire. A little convincing is so long over due. Of course one or two of them might face criminal charges if the financial audit was done.
