Firefighters have approved a contract that gives them an 11 percent wage increase over the course of the 6-year agreement, but also boosts the employee pension contribution and limits the number of retirees in a given year. The document between the city and Local 825, IAFF, AFL-CIO has been sent to the Board of Alders, which must act on it by Oct. 21 or it automatically goes into effect. It covers six years with a one percent increase retroactive in fiscal 2019 and 2 percent retroactive for fiscal 2020. Only active employees will receive the retroactive checks, which will be distributed in two payments: half paid within 2 months of approval by alders and the other on July 1. For fiscal 2021 through fiscal 2013, the firefighters will get a 2 percent raise in each year.
