A vote by Northampton’s City Council to fund the new firefighters contract puts an end to a painful chapter in the city’s history. The firefighters have been working without a contract and have been in contentious negotiations with the city for years. This week Mayor David Narkewicz announced a deal with the union that included a retroactive agreement including back pay, as well as a new three year pact. Thursday night the council put the matter to bed with a unanimous vote to fund the contract.
