Council Supports Interim Wage Increase for Firefighters

November 26, 2010 – City Council today directed Administration to proceed with a memorandum of settlement today for an interim wage increase for firefighters.

The City and the Thunder Bay Professional Firefighters Association agreed on an interim increase for the years 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, and is similar to what was negotiated with other City bargaining groups.

Firefighters have been without a wage increase since 2007. The arbitration hearing was held in July 2009, but an award is still pending.

The interim wage increase will be presented to City Council for ratification at the Dec. 7 meeting.
