While city administrators and managers are set to receive their biggest pay hike since 1992, city firefighters have agreed to accept a new three-year contract that contains no raise this year and only minimal increases for the next two years, officials said Wednesday. Under agreements approved by the City Council Tuesday night, the city's 18 department heads and about 250 middle managers will receive 3% cost-of-living increases.

The city and its firefighters' union on Wednesday announced that they are formally breaking off their year-old contract talks, but union leaders said a strike is not imminent. Negotiators for the city and the Huntington Beach Firefighters Assn. will meet July 24 to outline terms of the impasse declaration, said William Osness, the city's personnel director. Both sides have recommended calling in a state-appointed arbitrator to propose a resolution.

After more than four months of negotiations with the city's firefighter union, the Garden Grove City Council has voted to declare an impasse in talks and impose a contract covering the Fire Department. The vote was 4 to 1 Monday night in favor of the city proposal, which calls for a one-year contract with a 4% wage increase and a $58 monthly increase in the city's contribution to medical benefits. Councilman Frank Kessler voted against the pact.

City firefighters rallied at City Hall on Tuesday to protest stalled contract negotiations. Firefighters, without a contract since July 1996, want a 5% pay raise over a three-year period. "The big stumbling block has been that the city's last, best and final offer reflected no increase in wages for a 27-month period," said Richard Chavez, president of Anaheim Firefighters' Assn.

Stepping up pressure on the city to settle a prolonged contract dispute, a group of city firefighters took their case to the City Council. Firefighters who attended last week's meeting asked council members to bring Huntington Beach salaries more in line with those of other firefighting agencies in the county. "This City Council has said that public safety is a top priority in this city, said Robert Glenn, a Huntington Beach paramedic. ". . .

Orange County firefighters will receive a 20% pay raise over five years under a contract approved Thursday, ending almost a year of union negotiations with the Orange County Fire Authority.

A new salary comparison prepared by city officials concludes that the city's latest contract offer to its firefighters would boost their average pay within two years to the third highest among Orange County cities considered in the report. But the president of the firefighters' union, who is calling for salaries to be raised to that level, assailed the report as being "heavily skewed" in the city's favor.

Firefighters have gathered more than 21,000 signatures in an effort to qualify a November ballot measure requiring that labor disputes between them and the city be resolved by a neutral third party. If the measure is successful, Anaheim would be the first county city in required to use binding arbitration in contract disputes. A three-member panel would decide on disputes over wages, hours or terms and conditions of employment.
