Local 663 (DPW) voted yesterday by 10-20 vote margin to take their contractual raises. As a result three Community Service Officers are now terminated by the City of New Rochelle.
Meanwhile, the NRFD rank & file will vote over the next two days on a proposed raise deferral. The executive board of the NRFD voted down the deferral but a full vote is required. The current status of the terminated firefighters was unclear but their firings were to be effective this week.
