Telecommunicators Week

National Public Safety Telecommunication Week is April 14-20, 2024


This week, we honor the men and women who answer our 911 calls. These telecommunicators are the first responders who we rely on in our time of need. They are the first to hear our cries for help, and they are the first to dispatch the necessary emergency personnel to our aid.



There are so many points of uncertainty for workers across the nation that many turn to their union for a sense of certainty and security. The Baltimore County Federation of Public Employees (BCFPE) Local 4883, has continuously been a source of security for members. One hallmark of the stability the union has been able to provide members is reaching tentative agreements that secure solid pay, much desired benefits, and presenting them before the body with enough time and resources to engage in the democratic process of approving any collective bargaining agreement. 

BCPFE continues in that tradition with its recently reached tentative agreement with the county. Read on for more!

Summer is upon us, and parents, children and teachers are winding down from what has been an exhausting and fully operational school year—the first since the devastating pandemic. The long-lasting impact of COVID-19 has affected our students’ and families’ well-being and ignited the politics surrounding public schools. All signs point to the coming school year unfolding with the same sound and fury, and if extremist culture warriors have their way, being even more divisive and stressful.
