A lawsuit filed by more than three dozen current and retired Martinsburg firefighters allegedly failing to pay holiday pay has been amended a second time to add claims of retaliation and salary adjustment. Mark Stroop is a lieutenant with the Martinsburg Fire Department and is president of the I.A.F.F. Local 805. He is the named plaintiff, and all 37 plaintiffs are members of the local. Three of the plaintiffs are listed as captains, six as lieutenants, 26 are firefighters and two are retired. “The City of Martinsburg appears to pay its police officers correctly as to holiday pay, and this lawsuit simply seeks to have the firefighters also paid correctly as to holiday pay,” plaintiffs attorney Teresa Toriseva said when the complaint originally filed in July.
