CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Chambersburg's lawsuit against a firefighters' union could easily spend months in the court system and cost borough taxpayers thousands of dollars in legal fees.
Borough Solicitor G. Bryan Salzmann said the suit, filed May 8 against International Association of Firefighters Local 1813 and two of its officers, was a necessary reaction to a situation that threatened public safety. The union has been court-ordered to stop "encouraging, sanctioning and supporting a secondary boycott of volunteer fire services."
