FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 9, 2015 (Philadelphia) - “I want to congratulate IAFF Local 22, its membership and President Joe Schulle, the Nutter Administration and everyone involved in today’s news that an equitable agreement has been reached in supporting our firefighters and paramedics.
By agreeing to not challenge this award in court, the Administration has sent a much-needed positive signal for labor relations in Philadelphia, and particularly to the first responders that have worked diligently to keep our citizens safe for so long during this arbitration process without contractual certainty.
I also want to recognize that all four major municipal employee unions are now under contract.”
