Walsh, union reach tentative deal on contract

Firefighters must vote; terms are not disclosed

The union representing Boston firefighters and Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s administration announced on Saturday that they had reached a tentative labor deal, but neither side would disclose terms.

In a joint statement, Walsh and Richard Paris, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 718, trumpeted the negotiated agreement, which union members must vote to ratify before it goes to the City Council. A ratification vote will be held within the next two weeks.
