A new three-year contract agreement between the city and International Association of Firefighters AFL-CIO Local 1363 received the approval of the City Council without opposition on May 28. In all, the contract carries an estimated additional cost of $687,821 to the city over the course of the three years. The agreement provides for 2-percent salary increases for firefighters in fiscal years 2020 and 2021, followed by a 3-percent increase in fiscal 2022. The total cost of the salary increases over the life of the contract is estimated at $721,336. For the fiscal year beginning July 1, salaries will range from $61,039 for a private with less than a year of experience to $101,364 for the assistant chief's position. By fiscal year 2021, those salaries will increase to $64,127 and $106,490, respectively. The pact also includes a roughly half-percent increase in longevity pay, which will cost an estimated $94,994 over the three-year term.
