Northampton City Council to Consider New Fire Contract

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.  The agreement covers from 2011 to this year, when firefighters were without a contract, as well as the next three years.  The contract still needs to be ratified by the City Council, which will take up the matter at its Thursday meeting.
