Greenfield and its firefighters reached agreement Tuesday on a contract that averted cuts in benefits for other employees and possible service reductions.
In the two-year contract, the firefighters agreed to no raises next year. They also agree to pay 5.9 percent toward pensions and 12.6 percent of health insurance premiums as all other employees are, even though the firefighters wouldn't have to make those contributions, under state law.
Police have already agreed to the pension and health insurance premium contributions, but other contract elements are still pending. city officials are optimistic that the rest of a police contract will be hammered out in the next few days.
