A group of Parkersburg city firefighters is bringing a lawsuit against the City of Parkersburg to get back longevity pay they claim was incorrectly reduced by the city. Attorney Walt Auvil recently filed the suit on behalf of Wayne White, Michael Wood and Joshua Gandee as well as others similarly affected and the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 91. According to the lawsuit, in March 2017, the city reduced White’s pay by removing a portion of his longevity pay, which he had been receiving throughout his employment. The city did the same thing in August 2017 to Wood and Gandee, the suit states.
