The five City of Lockport firefighters laid off by the city's Fire Board Sunday night were sent home with pay today, according to the fire union president.

The layoff was to be effective Nov. 3, according to the Fire Board. The union members being laid off had received notices Monday and Tuesday stating that they were to work through Monday Nov. 3.

Local 963 President Kevin Pratt, however, said, "Today laid off members were sent home, told not to report to work, that they will be paid through Nov. 3."

He said their immediate removal necessitated off-duty firefighters to be called in from work to cover for them.

"Automatic overtime will again be in effect any time there are three members off of work," Pratt said.
