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.

Waving placards and pushing baby strollers, hundreds of firefighters and their families staged a Labor Day rally at Anaheim Stadium on Monday to protest stymied negotiations that have left them without a contract for more than a year. The rally at the gates of the stadium was timed to greet crowds as they streamed out of the parking lot to wrap up Labor Day weekend watching the Angels play the Colorado Rockies.

Ventura County firefighters, who have been without a union contract for more than a year, are expecting an agreement with the county fire district to be certified next week. The proposed contract calls for no salary increases and would cover the period through December, 1996, officials said. The contract also contains a provision that would help reduce the amount of compensatory time that firefighters take in lieu of overtime, which officials said is more expensive than paying overtime.

When his father was struck by a car two years ago, Ventura resident Larry Graham says, firefighters arrived on the scene within four minutes and then stood by helplessly, prevented from performing advanced life support. Under a contract with a private ambulance service, the firefighters had to wait for CareLine California to arrive. The ambulance crew arrived six minutes later, Graham says, but his father was dead before he got to the hospital. "Would that six minutes have made a difference?

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.

Despite months of protests by a local taxpayers group, the City Council has voted to ratify a two-year, $21.2-million contract with city firefighters. The 3-2 action last week ends a three-month struggle by the Orange Taxpayers Assn. to pressure the council to explore the possibility of contracting with the county for city fire services. Group members said contracting for county fire services could save the city as much as $2 million a year.

The City Council is expected to vote on a controversial two-year, $21.2-million contract with city firefighters at 3 p.m. today. If approved, the agreement would effectively sink efforts of a local group that is pressuring the city to contract with the county for fire services--a move the group says could save the cash-strapped city $2 million per year. City officials say the proposed agreement with firefighters will save the city $1.8 million over the next two years.

The president of the city's firefighters union, which has labored for nearly 20 months without a contract, took a swipe at top city officials this week while unhappy firefighters carried placards at City Hall and other public places. Union President Capt. Curt Campbell claimed that Fire Chief Michael Dolder and City Administrator Michael T. Uberuaga are playing "word games" and allegedly plan to make Fire Department cuts while declaring an intent to retain current staffing levels.
