Fire Work Schedule Heads To Court

Providence officials are defending the reorganization of the fire department and changes made to the work week.  Mayor Jorge Elorza changed the fire department staffing from four to three platoons last month, and the fire union sued to stop the move.  The change increases the base work week of a firefighter to between 42 and 56 hours a week.  City officials say the changes were made in accordance with state law.
