City approves contract with firefighters union


SHERIDAN — A streamlined negotiations process with Sheridan City Council still brought satisfaction to the Firefighters Local Union 276, according to Union President Jerry Johnston.

“I think it went very well,” Johnston told city council Monday. “I’d like to thank you all for your generosity and your time… It was a good day and everyone got along well. We’re very happy with the format we came up with, and we’re looking forward to doing it again next year.”

On May 3, Sheridan City Council unanimously approved a new contract with the union. The contract, which will go into effect July 1, was the end result of the city’s annual collective bargaining session in which the union and the city discussed terms related to wages, rate of pay, working conditions and other subjects of interest to the firefighters.
