Statement from the Southern Marin Fire District Board of Directors and Fire Chief Christian Tubbs.
The Marin IJ published at article on Saturday, February 21, 2016 titled, “Lawsuit says fire district owes OT”.
In response to this article the Fire District releases the following statement.
The District is confident that this matter will be resolved in a fair and reasonable manner for all parties, including the community. It was determined last April that underpayments of past overtime were inadvertently and incorrectly calculated, according to Federal law. Both the district and the Firefighters are working collaboratively to correct the error. We anticipate that this matter will be resolved quickly and will not result in litigation.
The community can be assured that they will continue to receive the highest quality services from the Fire District and its employees.
