    Uniontown plans to disband paid fire department
    By Tribune-Review
    Thursday, August 26, 2010




    Uniontown has notified its entire paid fire department that all six members and the chief will be out of jobs by the end of the year, with volunteers to take their place.

    In a letter sent Wednesday to the International Association of Firefighters Local 955, Councilman Gary Gearing notified firefighters the layoffs will be complete by Dec. 31, when the next contract expires.

    City council voted Tuesday to notify the fire department of the intended layoffs. Mayor Ed Fike said the move is intended to save money.

    Fike said although the fire department recently landed a $632,835 federal grant to bring the force back to its full complement of 11, council is uncertain it can legally accept the funds.

    Fike said city officials have questions about how to replace those funds when the grant runs out.

    Joshua Bloom, a Pittsburgh attorney who represents the firefighters, said today the union plans to fight the layoffs

    No link Loo. This story just irritates me to no end. I am not vollie-bashing but I am bashing THESE vollies. Smells like politics 101 to me. Where does it end?

    Mikey,

    I am familiar with the story and was in on the emergency resolution in San Diego. I can sense the sarcasm in your post, but I think you meant to include a link to the story.......maybe??

    Let me guess. A group of people stepped up to volunteer so the paid staff could be layed off sooner?
