Cincinnati firefighters will get a 5% raise this year under a contract negotiated between the city and union.

The three-year agreement also includes a 4% raise in 2022 and a 3% raise in 2023. The most recent contract included 2% wage increases for each of the two years covered. That agreement expired in December.

Cincinnati City Council approved the agreement Wednesday.
