Mayor Jean Stothert has tweaked her offer to the Omaha fire union, agreeing to hold off on layoffs and keep rigs in service for a year, so long as the Fire Department slashes the size of its paramedic training program.
The proposal, released Tuesday evening, comes with an ultimatum: Agree to this deal by Friday, or 19 firefighters will lose their jobs on Jan. 4.
