March 20, 2006--General President Harold A. Schaitberger, several 2008 presidential prospects, and leaders of both major parties addressed over six hundred fire fighters from around the country gathered for the International Association of Fire Fighters' 2006 Alfred K. Whitehead Legislative Conference.  The next day the fire fighters lobbied congressmen and Senators.  IAFF claims more than 3,000 local affiliates and some 272,000 members.  In recent cycles the union has actively engaged in presidential politicking; in Sept. 2003 it was the first national union to endorse Sen. John Kerry in his campaign for the Democratic nomination.  next >
