Fire Truck Drivers Request Raise in Pay

Fire Truck Drivers Request Raise in Pay

The City Council of Minneapolis, Minn., was confronted with a demand for a $25 monthly pay increase for each of seventy-two fire motor operators, which if granted, would put their pay rate higher than that of fire captains.

The operators, who drive fire apparatus of all kinds, bolstered their demand with a petition claiming that requirements for their work are more exacting than those for fire captain jobs.

Operator pay rate now is $5 per month above that for a first-class fireman. while the captain’s rate is $20 over the base.
