I have often wondered why the International Association of Fire Fighters isn’t completely international. Actually to my knowledge the IAFF encompasses the United States and Canada, there being a visible difference in the two divisions. If the IAFF is for the U.S. and Canada then who looks after the best interests of the other paid firefighters around the World. Today that question was answered in part.

The IAFF has been in talks with other Fire Unions about a Global Alliance. I don’t think there will be any mergers or take-overs, rather a United Nations for the Fire Service. The other Unions in the talks are the Fire Brigades Union (FBU), the New Zealand Professional Firefighters Association (NZPFA), and the United Firefighters Union of Australia (UFUA).

Are there other Unions of the sort out there? If you know, let me know.
