Dear FEMA Inspectors,
For many years I have fought for the rights of every subcontracted FEMA housing inspector. Emanating from the class action lawsuit I'd filed in 2007 against the prime contractors for FEMA's housing inspection services, Dewberry Davis and Parsons Brinkerhoff, all inspectors are now enjoying the fruits of my tireless efforts. No longer do you have to stay in cheap hotels, pay for your daily expenses and for rental cars. But there's still work to do.
PAFI is on the cusp of a new era. Together with my new book that has just been released to market, our membership ranks are increasing and PAFI's objectives are closer to fruition. Regardless of whether FEMA creates a cadre of housing inspectors from PAFI's members, or should they choose to continue their association with prime contractors PB and/or Vanguard, in numbers there is strength. Let's be strong. By joining PAFI, no longer will you be relegated to accepting the current failures within this existing and unfair system. We will be the liaison between FEMA and PB and Vanguard. We will, at last, have a voice.
The aforementioned book provides the reader with information never revealed to the general public. As well, it will enlighten every subcontracted FEMA housing inspector as to how the disaster-relief system actually works, and reveals, among other things, the intricacies of the contractual relationship between FEMA and PB + Vanguard. The book is listed with major retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon. It's a must read for every inspector. I hope you enjoy it.
The transition from an Association to a nationally recognized Union is PFI's goal. We are here to inform you, guide you, and protect your interests. The current pay-scale for inspectors is grossly inadequate, is far-below industry standards, and must be raised to $75 per inspection. Most of you are aware that PB currently offers health insurance, overtime wages, and a debit card to cover inspectors' expenses, but Vanguard does not offer any of those to its inspectors. This must be addressed. These are but a few issues that are on PAFI's agenda. We invite suggestions. Please feel free to do so. Should you have any questions, don't hesitate to email or call me. As previously said, there is still much work to do.
PAFI's annual membership fee is $125. When transitioning to a certified Union, we project that those annual fees will be under $200. Membership seniority is relative to the date when joining PAFI. A board of directors is envisioned, and we will be seeking qualified individuals to fill certain posts, both regionally and nationally. For now, should you be interested in a position with PAFI, please contact us. When warranted, new updates will be posted on this site. Stay tuned.
Nothing stays the same. Change is the only constant in life. And now is the time for poignant changes. PAFI values your membership, and we hope you value PAFI. As always, PAFI members' identities are never revealed.
