(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Firefighters and the city of Las Vegas remain deadlocked over a new two-year contract.  Officials say the union’s request would cost the city more than $12-million.

Negotiators want firefighters to forego a cost-of living hike, pay more for health insurance and end longevity pay for new employees.  The city also wants to adopt a “gain sharing” plan, where workers get a bonus if the government saves money.

The city declared an impasse with the firefighters last week.
