The OCP Mission
The Organizational Collaborative Process (OCP) is a robust and comprehensive labor management program that helps to create a work environment that provides the highest level of service while maintaining healthy and safe working conditions for our members. We like to think of ourselves as two sides of the same coin and strive to find solutions to our problems together. The OCP is a collaboration between the UGFF Local 4005 and the Goodyear Fire Department, with each side having a co-chair within each committee and sub-committee.
The Executive Committee is co-chaired by President Dan Freiberg with Fire Chief Paul Luizzi. This committee receives all final work and recommendations from the sub-committees and either puts them into Department policy, directive, or practice; or pushes them back down for more work based on a lack of consensus.
