  • Court orders Providence firefighters back to work

    (Providence-AP) -- A Superior Court judge has granted Providence
    Mayor David Cicilline a restraining order to make city firefighters
    to go back to work.
    A spokeswoman for the mayor says 63 firefighters called in sick
    today and 32 firefighters called in sick on Tuesday, coating the
    city thousands of dollars in overtime pay.
    Providence Firefighters Union President David Peters says that
    the union leadership didn't encourage any firefighters to call in
    sick. He says many who didn't show up used personal days, not sick
    days, at their own discretion.
    It is not known what prompted what Cicilline calls a "work
    stoppage and slowdown."
    The firefighters have been without a contract since June 2001.
    Cicilline has been seeking concessions from their union on health
    care costs.
    The mayor said their actions put others at risk. But the city
    was able to maintain minimum mandatory staffing levels. But Peters
    disagrees.
