Elorza Wants New Firefighter Platoon System

Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza is pushing the firefighters union to accept the three platoon system in the fire department.  Elorza says shifting from a four platoon system to three platoons could save the city five-million-dollars in overtime and callback pay.  The new system takes effect on Sunday, and Elorza is hoping to reach a negotiated agreement on the change.  Union officials say the new system will generate its own overtime that will reduce the savings city officials hope to realize.
