City owes firefighters $2.2 million

City officials say Omaha firefighters are owed $2.2 million in raises for 2009 and 2010, after the state labor court ruled in their favor on Jan. 4. Previous estimates ranged as high as $5 million. Last fall, Mayor Jim Suttle and the Omaha Firefighters Local 385 agreed in principal to pay freezes in 2009 and 2010 at an estimated savings of $4.5 million. But a final contract has still not been drafted as both sides continue to negotiate over other items in the deal. The firefighters have been without a contract in place since 2007. The raises will be likely be paid out in April or May.
