City, fire union back in court

April 25, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The city is back in court with firefighters, this time in a preemptive strike against a possible future challenge of its plan for a makeover of the shift structure of the Woonsocket Fire Department aimed at reducing overtime pay.
At issue is whether the plan violates the city's collective bargaining agreement with the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 732. The city has asked a Superior Court judge for a ruling of declaratory judgment on the question, a type of order that would clarify the union's legal options, if any, after the shift changes are implemented.
