Letter from LAFD union head blasts decision to scrap recruit class

The pres­id­ent of the uni­on rep­res­ent­ing Los Angeles fire­fight­ers on Monday told the may­or that sus­pend­ing a con­tro­ver­sial hir­ing pro­gram is “pat­ently un­fair” to can­did­ates on track to be in­cluded in fu­ture classes.

Capt. Frank Lima voiced his con­cerns in a let­ter to May­or Eric Gar­cetti, who an­nounced last week that he was halt­ing the pro­gram amid con­cerns about mis­man­age­ment and nepot­ism.
