Council Approves San Diego Firefighter Raises
Tuesday, April 22, 2008
San Diego firefighters haven't gotten a raise in four years.
The contract approved by a 7-1 vote on Monday still needs a second vote of the council. It calls for a 3 percent salary increase on July 1 and a 2 percent increase Sept. 1.
Last week, the City Council tentatively approved a one-year contract calling for a 6 percent pay hike for police officers.
