Nutter to Appeal Firefighters' Contract
Union dispute continues, as administration calls the deal financially ruinous.
Mayor Michael Nutter will again appeal the Philadelphia firefighters' contract, saying it's financially ruinous, according to a report by The Philadelphia Inquirer.
This continues a four-year labor dispute between the administration and the Local 22 firefighters' union.
Last week, union President Bill Gault criticized Nutter at the national firefighters' meeting, held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Vice President Joe Biden addressed the union, but refrained from weighing in on the dispute.
The Inquirer reports that the city will file an appeal in Common Pleas Court next week.
