Firefighters, trustees split over vacations



The union representing Colerain Township firefighters is suing the Colerain Township Board of Trustees over disputed vacation time.

The suit alleges that Colerain Township firefighters are entitled to take any and all accrued vacation time that has accumulated since they were hired. This specific group of firefighters worked part-time at either Colerain Township fire stations or previously at departments in other municipalities.

The board has rejected this request, according to the suit. The suit demands that the board be made to reconsider its request.

However, in the event the board continues to deny this group of firefighters their accrued vacation, the vacation time should be paid to the firefighters in cash, the suit claims.

The suit has been filed in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
