Cleveland sends safety force layoff notices

CLEVELAND, Dec. 24, 2009 (AP): The city of Cleveland has sent layoff notices to more than 100 police, fire, and emergency medical technician employees to help balance the budget.

City Safety Director Martin Flask on Wednesday signed notices for 67 police patrol officers, 38 firefighters and six emergency medical technicians.

The notices are effective Jan. 11, 2010, but would be rescinded if unions agree to a pay cut of about 4 percent that Mayor Frank Jackson has requested.

Flask also sent notices to supervisors who can avoid layoffs by accepting a reduction in rank.

Union leaders say they will keep negotiating with the city to avoid layoffs.
