Northampton and Firefighters Reach Accord

The city of Northampton has finally signed an agreement with its firefighters and EMTs, ending several years of turmoil.  The contract represents a compromise, giving the firefighters most of the back wages they were seeking and a one-percent salary increase this fiscal year.  It also funds some stipends and step raises.  The contract still needs to be ratified by the City Council.
