Description

Mark Marquez served in the US Army from 1987-1993. He started working at the Santa Fe Fire Department in 1994 when the Santa Fe Firefighters Association existed as a fraternal group. When AFSCME American Federation of State, county and Municipal Employees started organizing a Union with the City Public employees, AFSCME also encouraged Fire and Police to consider unionizing. Marquez was involved with organizing the City of Santa Fe IAFF Local #2059. He shares the challenges of building a Union as well as the negotiation for improved retirement benefits, health and safety on the job, and staffing.
