Firefighters union ratifies no-brownout agreement


Members of the Houston firefighters’ union have signed off on a deal with Mayor Annise Parker that would prevent pulling firetrucks from service to help balance the Fire Department’s budget.

“We’re very pleased that the union membership ratified the agreement,” Houston City Attorney David M. Feldman said in a statement released Friday.

Now that the deal has been approved by rank-and-file members of the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association Local 341, it’s up to Houston City Council members to vote on it. Feldman said they will take it up on Wednesday.

See here, here, and here for the background. I can’t imagine any scenario in which Council fails to approve this.
