New contract agreement with the firefighter union

LAWTON, Okla._The City of Lawton announced a new contract agreement with the firefighters union Tuesday night.

The new agreement increases their starting salary to roughly $36,500. The new deal also offers a $2,500 public safety incentive, as well as an EMT certification incentive. The contract is for two years, and it was approved by a unanimous vote.

City Council took no action on their contract talks with the police union, but the city attorney said the council would almost certainly have a proposal to vote on at their next meeting December 8.
