Personnel board approves pay cut for firefighters

By Ashley Nix

JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Jefferson County's personnel board has approved pay cuts for Birmingham Firefighters. The meeting happened Thursday morning.

Firefighters and attorneys claim a resolution passed Tuesday by the Birmingham City Council is not clear on how firefighters will be paid.  The chairman of the Personnel Board says the board only has certain jurisdiction and passed the cuts.

There is still pending litigation.  Firefighters filed suit a few weeks ago regarding the pay cuts.
