Fire district board approves new union contract

The board overseeing fire services for Miamisburg and Miami Twp. has approved a three-year union contract.

The Miami Valley Fire District Board of Trustees voted 4-0 this morning on a new collective bargaining agreement with the Local 1832 of the International Association of Firefighters.

The deal, retroactive to June 25, gives the union of about 50 members wage increases in the second and third year of the contract that are 0.5 percent higher than the previous three-year agreement, officials said.
