Carpentersville Fire Department news

Excerpts from on August 18th:

John-Paul Schilling is out as Carpentersville’s fire chief, officials announced Wednesday. According to a brief statement, Schilling resigned. He was hired as fire chief in June 2016.

Battalion Chief Rick Nieves has assumed the role of interim chief and he declined to comment on Schilling’s resignation.

Schilling is the village’s second top public safety official to resign this year. In March, Police Chief Patrick Hoey was replaced by Deputy Chief Todd Shaver.

At the time, the village manager said the village was moving in a different direction and thanked Hoey for his service and wished him well, and that Schilling’s resignation did not involve any severance package. He added that the village hopes to have a new chief named as soon as possible.
And from the

Former Elmhurst Fire Chief Bill Anaszewicz, who left suddenly in early April, will become the fire chief in Carpentersville starting on Monday.

Anaszewicz was only chief for six months when he submitted his resignation letter April 4, saying he was retiring effective immediately and that he was dealing with family medical issues.

In a news release five days later, the city did not say Anaszewicz was retiring, but rather that he was resigning after finding a new employment opportunity.

Carpentersville, in suburban Kane County has about 10,000 fewer people than Elmhurst.

Anaszewicz and city officials never explained the chief’s quick departure.

In a statement to the Carpentersville Fire Department, interim Fire Chief Rick Nieves called Anaszewicz a “bright and experienced firefighter and leader.”

Anaszewicz has 29 years of experience as a firefighter, 26 of them in Elmhurst.

Last October, Anaszewicz was appointed as the chief after serving as interim chief for a year and a half.

thanks Dennis

Carpentersville Fire Department news

Excerpts from

Carpentersville, Illinois, Firefighter Nick Salzmann has won his appeal to decertify the local union chapter from representing him and his coworkers. Salzmann petitioned to hold a vote about whether to separate from the union back in September. Service Employees International Union bosses misled him on how to go about it.

“We’ve been going back and forth with the union to have that vote to no avail, so we brought in help from National Right To Work to file everything to decertify,” Salzmann said in January.

80% of the firefighters were in favor of separating, but the Illinois Labor Relations Board prevented them from voting based on allegations from SEIU. Union officials attempted to delay the vote by claiming Carpentersville officials violated bargaining procedures.

Salzmann appealed the decision, contending SEIU wasn’t following procedures by refusing to hold a vote.

“The union walked away from the bargaining table twice when the employer could not guarantee that the decertification process would not proceed,” Salzmann said in his appeal.

Instead of responding to the appeal, SEIU finally caved after hindering employees’ efforts to dissolve the union. They’ve since filed paperwork giving power over to Salzmann and his fellow firefighters.

While SEIU temporarily blocked the will of the firefighters, their tactics could grow more militant Nov. 8 if Illinois voters back a union power grab entitled Amendment 1. Unions want the Illinois Constitution amended to enshrine their powers to negotiate over nearly any topic and strike to get their way.

Voters need to decide whether public employee unions need any more power in Illinois. The state’s fiscal mess and $313 billion pension debt is a direct result of politicians pandering to public unions and the union bosses nurturing fealty with campaign cash.
