Proposed Contract for Firefighter Union

The men and women of the Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue provide a high quality of service and care to people every day. We can all be proud of their accomplishments including the recent recognition as Outstanding EMS Agency in the State.

On October 1, 2017, the Career Firefighters Association of Frederick County, Md IAFF Local 3666 requested to begin a negotiation of wages and benefits with Frederick County Government. A contract agreement was negotiated in good faith, and was verbally agreed to by representatives of the career firefighters union. The proposed contract included a salary improvement and a commitment to transition to a new service-based pay scale, both of which were fully funded in the Fiscal Year 2019 budget.  

Below are links to the negotiated contract, its attachments, and official correspondence.
