After over two years of contract negotiations, Manchester and its firefighters have reached a tentative agreement. On Tuesday, the Board of Mayor and Alderman approved a three-year contract that is now headed to union members for a vote. The decision comes after a tense month of many firefighters taking sick leave , and fewer firefighters working each shift. Jeff Duval, president of the Manchester Professional Fire Fighters Association , expressed support for the tentative contract, which offers a 1.5% COLA increase for 2018 and a 2% increase in 2019 and 2020. Duval expects the contract to be finalized by the end of the month.
