Flint Firefighters Union Agree To Concessions 4-13-2011

Firefighters in one Mid-Michigan community have agreed to make concessions.
Flint firefighter’s union voted in favor to take on more of their own health care costs and retirement contributions.
They will no longer have a food allowance or sick leave buyback. One official said the concessions amount to a double-digit pay cut.
Mayor Dayne Walling called for the cuts earlier this month while laying out his budget plan. The deal does not include any layoffs. Walling is also calling on police officers to make concessions, but so far they have not voted on the plan.
Meanwhile overnight, TV5 got word from Walling saying the city is making a comeback. Kiplinger magazine has chosen the city as one of its 11 comeback cities for 2011.
That’s because the city has new business development in health care and life sciences. Flint was the only city from the Midwest to be chosen by the national business magazine.
