Fresno Firefighters Fight Furloughs

FRESNO, Calif. The union representing city firefighters has filed a lawsuit against the mayor and councilmember's asking a judge to issue a restraining order.

The city council and mayor approved involuntary furloughs for firefighters in order to solve a major budget deficit. But attorneys representing the union claim the furloughs violate the firefighter's employment contract.

A judge is scheduled to hear the case Wednesday afternoon.
