D.C. firefighters have a union contract after an arbitrator ruled on contract negoitations awarding a 10 percent raise over three years, Mark Segraves reports.

Firefighters have been working without a contract or raise since 2006.

The contract decision provides a 3 percent raise for 2012, and a 3.5 percent raise for 2013 and 2014. The union agreed to forego any raises for 2008 to 2011.

The arbitrator also offered a non-binding opinion on proposed shift changes, siding with the union, union president Ed Smith said.
