Nineteen Omaha firefighters will keep their jobs under a tentative deal reached between the Mayor's Office and the city's fire union.
The city and the union came to the agreement after months of sparring over the Fire Department's budget — and 10 days after the city began issuing layoff notices to 19 firefighters hired earlier this year. The layoffs were to be effective Jan. 4.
