The impasse between the city of Streator and the Streator firefighters union may cease Wednesday night, depending on the City Council's vote. The firefighters union has agreed to approve a labor contract with the city dating May 1, 2017, to the end of 2019. City staff have recommended the City Council approve the proposal Wednesday. Firefighters have been working without a labor agreement since April 30, 2017, and the matter was on track for arbitration. The city also may vote to finalize an agreement Wednesday with its police officers union, in which most of the items, including wages, were settled in binding arbitration. The majority of the contract language with the firefighters remains status quo from the previous contract, according to a memo to City Council members.
