Flint's firefighters union and emergency manager reach agreement
Flint's emergency manager, Michael Brown, and the city's firefighters union have worked out an agreement over concessions, Kristin Longley of the Flint Journal reports:
Brown said today that, as of this morning, it's the only signed agreement reached so far. The city has been talking with each of the six employee bargaining units, Brown has said.
He declined to comment on the details of the proposal, saying that the fire union members are expected to review the agreement and vote on it in about 10 days.
Brown hopes to have plan for the city's other unions in place by Friday. He's working to wipe out a budget deficit in Flint of around $11 million.
