Deadlocked legislators postpone raises for firefighters

News

Some firefighters will not be getting their raises, at least for now.

City councilors deadlocked over legislation that would have given a 1.5 percent raise to Albuquerque Fire Union employees.

Those against the increase cite budget concerns.

The union represents 640 Albuquerque firefighters.

The council says they would need six votes to revisit the increase.
