The International Association of Firefighters fought to block the city's bankruptcy bid and its motion to reject collective bargaining agreements in court for the past year. The union dropped its appeal of Vallejo's bankruptcy eligibility earlier this month, and the parties earlier this week filed an agreement that allows the city to reject the labor contract with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California in Sacramento.
