The Hobart City Council has unanimously approved a collective bargaining contract with Hobart Professional Firefighters Local 1641, the first time in 53 years the union has had a contract.
“This is a landmark case for the fire department,” City Councilman Matt Claussen said.
Fellow firefighters, who filled the council chamber Wednesday night in a show of support, applauded the council’s decision and the nearly yearlong negotiations between union president Enrique Lopez and a council subcommittee comprised of Claussen, City Councilman Dan Waldrop and City Councilman John Brezik.
