The Valley Park administration and firefighters operate within the guidance of a labor management relationship. These principles are developed and agreed to by the International Association of Fire Chiefs and the International Association of Firefighters in the true spirit of cooperation for the enhancement of the Fire/EMS service and the communities it serves. We recognize that mutual adherence to these values requires the constant effort of labor and management representatives.
