MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The city of Morgantown and International Association of Firefighters Local 313 have reached an agreement regarding differential pay.
The dispute stems from changes made to the city’s differential pay policy, which caused a $2,000 pay reduction for 47 firefighters.
Firefighters will no longer be entitled to differential pay and salaries for affected firefighters will be increased to offset any loss caused by the policy change. Only firefighters in the afternoon and evening shifts called out for unscheduled assignments will qualify for differential pay in the future.
The city plans to use the salary study to clarify and enforce policies while also improving services to taxpayers.
The Morgantown City Council will vote on the resolution at its Tuesday meeting.
