YOUNGSTOWN — Approving a three-year contract is a testament to the ongoing cooperation between the city and the International Association of Firefighters Local 312, said fire Chief John O’Neill.
City council and the union, which represents 140 firefighters, came to an agreement on the pact, which will include a 3-percent retroactive pay increase during its first year.
Council passed the agreement at its meeting tonight. The agreement was a result of a fact-finder report on union contracts, as well as the proposals of both the city and the union.
“I’m thrilled; it’s always tough working through negotiations,” O’Neill said.
