Feb. 14, 2024, Sarnia, Ont. – The Sarnia Professional Firefighters Association (SPFFA) and the City of Sarnia have ratified a four-year contract that will ensure the association’s 126 members are equitably compensated.

The contract was ratified by city council on Monday, establishing an annual 3.25 per cent wage increase for Sarnia Fire Rescue staff over the next four years, ensuring compensation keeps up with continued high inflation.

The previous contract for the SPFFA expired on Dec. 31, 2023. Negotiations began in late 2023, and the new contract – which maintains the city’s firefighters will be compensated within provincial averages – expires Dec. 31, 2027.

Sarnia is still negotiating with several of its other employee groups, specifically CUPE 3690, CUPE 2713, and CUPE 153.
