All 17 members of Jenks Firefighters Local 2567 voted “No Confidence” in Fire Chief Gary Friedel.
A release from the union says this vote comes after the declaration was delayed in June in an attempt to work with city management to address their problems with Friedel.
The union says Friedel has a long-time record of poor management and safety issues that put lives and public safety in jeopardy.
The release says IAFF Local 2567 members will continue to respond to all manners of emergencies.
A final decision about how to move forward with Chief Friedel will be discussed at an Oct. 21 meeting with Jenks City Council at City Hall.
