Sorry to hear about the layoffs. Here the city officials were threatening pay laying off FF/paramedics unless we gave in to paycuts, increasing our contributions to benefits, and reducing benefits. No one got laid off but we took a hit on pay, benefits, and staffing. Now they put 2 trucks out of service every day instead of hiring any overtime to staff them.
