SHERIDAN, Wyo. — The Wyoming Supreme Court has sided with firefighters who sued the city of Sheridan after they were denied pay raises.

The ruling last week means four Sheridan firefighters will receive back pay that was denied by the city of Sheridan due to budget shortfalls in September 2010.

The Sheridan Press reports that the city will owe more than $6,500, which will be split between the firefighters according to step level and years of service.

The case centered on a disagreement between the firefighters union and the city of Sheridan on how to interpret a portion of their collective bargaining agreement regarding pay raises.

A lower court judge had ruled earlier in favor of the city.
