The Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association is "outraged" over the firing of three firefighters over their social media posts.
The association issued a tersely-worded statement in the wake of Toronto Fire dumping three firefighters Monday.
"The association does not believe that the city has investigated this matter properly or considered the facts that were raised during the course of meetings between the parties," the statement from TPFFA president Ed Kennedy read.
"The association is outraged by these terminations and will make every effort to have these members reinstated. For obvious reasons, we are not prepared to discuss in public the facts of these terminations. “
Kennedy stressed "we do not disagree that the fire service should foster a diverse and welcoming workplace.
"The association has always been prepared to work with Toronto Fire Service to reach that objective and remains committed to doing so," he stated. "These terminations neither address the specific issues that have been raised nor do they promote the alleged objectives of the fire service."
Toronto Fire officials confirmed Monday they conducted a "comprehensive" investigation that found "significant findings that city policies were violated."
Two of the three firefighters had been suspended with pay during the investigation.
