The City Council on Tuesday is expected to approve a new contract with the Glendale Firefighter's Assn., which includes no pay raises through 2013, higher employee contributions to pension plans and a two-tier retirement system with a higher retirement age for all new hires.
Firefighters last year voted to postpone a scheduled pay increase for two years. Under the proposed agreement, the raise would be pushed out two more years, meaning firefighters would remain at current salary levels until July 2013.
The Glendale Firefighter's Assn. voted to approve the tentative contract, which would run through June 30, 2014.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The council is expected to approve the contract.
Emergency pump connections
The City Council will consider a proposed $200,000 Glendale Water & Power project to install portable pump connections at 12 locations.
