Firefighters reject wage freeze; 8 will be cut | Delawareonline.com | The News Journal: "By a one-vote margin, Wilmington's firefighters union rejected the city's request to accept a wage freeze this year, meaning eight firefighters will be laid off July 1, officials said Tuesday.
The 58-to-57 vote by the 170-member union was held Monday.
'It is unfortunate that 58 firefighters, a clear minority of the union's members, have decided that a pay raise is more important than their fellow fire colleagues,' Mayor James M. Baker said. 'Their own union, charged with preserving jobs of firefighters, has now caused them to lose their jobs.'"
