By Christopher Roberson I n the days following the City Council’s 9-1 vote to make Anthony Carli the permanent fi re chief, the Everett Firefi ghters Local 143 Union is still waiting to hear from the Division of Labor Relations as to whether or not Carli had an unfair advantage in the promotion process. “He was provisionary chief for three-and-a-half years and all of the sudden they rushed to make him permanent chief,” said union President Craig Hardy. Hardy said that in May 2018, the union received a letter from City Solicitor Colleen Mejia stating that the city was considering using the Civil Service Assessment Center to select a fi re chief. “They knew they had an obMember FDIC Member SIF ligation to communicate with us,” said Hardy. The union replied saying E Friday, February 7, 2020 Union seeks answer to grievance over fire chief’s promotion that Everett had historically made promotions based on the score of the written civil service exam. However, Hardy said the union still off ered to negotiate with the city. “We never heard from them again,” he said. Hardy said that at this point, the union’s objective is to have the promotion process done over again. During the council’s January 27 meeting, Assistant City Solicitor Keith Slattery said Carli did not have an unfair advantage of any sort. “Chief Carli only had an administrative role,” said Slattery. “You have a valid and legal process.” In addition, council President Rosa DiFlorio said the council cannot engage in labor-related confl icts. “We are not here to get involved in labor negotiations,” she said. “We are here to protect the taxpayers.” Eagle Scout thanks Kiwanis At the Everett Kiwanis Club’s Holiday Dinner at Abbondanza Ristorante on Tuesday evening, Club President Rafael Santos accepted a handmade wooden plaque by Eagle Scout Jared Alphen, son of Kiwanian Matthew Alphen, thanking the Club for supporting his efforts.
