The city has reached a tentative agreement with the firefighters union on a contract, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders announced today at the beginning of City Council impasse proceedings.

Details of the agreement weren’t released but city negotiators had said they were seeking $5.8 million in concessions from the firefighters union to balance the budget for the fiscal year starting July 1. In total, Sanders wants city employees to give back $32 million in wages.

The firefighters are expected to vote soon on whether to ratify the contract.

The city still disagrees with the four other unions representing the city’s blue- and white-collar employees, as well as the Deputy City Attorneys Association and the Police Officers Association.
