Concessions announced by San Jose firefighters in attempt to save services
San Jose Firefighters Local 230 has announced pay and benefit concessions that will save the City of San Jose millions of dollars and keep firefighters protecting the residents and businesses of San Jose.
In a final attempt to avoid drastic fire and medical service reductions that will put San Jose residents and businesses at risk, San Jose firefighters announced a new proposal to the City. The details of the proposal were announced on August 1, 2010 at San Jose Fire Department Training Center.
The loss of 49 firefighters and closure of four fire engines and one fire truck will increase emergency response times and put lives and property at greater risk. The firefighters' offer will allow the City to keep the four fire engines and fire truck in service.
