When The North Side Fire Brigade first came in to existence after The Chicago Fire Department Local #2 Strike of 1980, The first motion that was brought up for discussion, was that any member who worked as a Firefighter for the City of Chicago during the strike of 1980 would not be allowed to join The North Side Fire Brigade or be a welcome member of the North Side Fire Brigade. Unfortunately over the years this has caused great disharmony both on and off of The Chicago Fire Department for the past Thirty years. The decisions you made today will always affect your future.
