Union sends another proposal to mayor
“This is not a money issue anymore,” Capt. Keith Odom, who represents the local firefighter’s union, said. “We’ve got a 58 percent turnover rate and that’s what we’ve got to address.”
The newest proposal asks that, among other things, the city up a firefighter’s starting pay to $6.18 an hour. That is the amount the firefighters have asked for in a lawsuit against the city of Ruston.
