Firefighters union has yet to sign off on proposed contract

August 26th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Firefighters Local 1715 did not meet or vote on a proposed contract with the City of Cumberland last night. President Ken McKenzie said that there are differences between the document the city has been working with, and the proposed agreement the fire fighters have been considering. McKenzie said that lawyers from both sides are trying to iron out the remaining issues, part of which deal with the effective date of the contract. He said that if the city’s contract would concur with the one his membership has been considering, the vote could be taken as soon as seven days. A more realistic time frame may be two weeks.
