After councilmember Carl Demaio blew the whistle about local firefighters making over $100,000 a year, the San Diego Firefighters Union is calling foul.
Members of Local 145 say Demaio is irresponsible for misleading the public about their $100,000 salaries due to overtime.
They argue firefighters on Demaio's report are highly specialized and it's unfair they're being portrayed as greedy.
They claim the city saved $3 million last year paying overtime rather than hiring new firefighters for disasters, such as wildfires.
"These money is fully reimbursed by the federal government and so is the backfill of positions when the person is vacant for those 30 days," explained Captain Cory Beckwith who is with San Diego City Firefighters Local 145.
Demaio says the numbers came from the payroll system and the union is just trying to divert attention from the waste at city hall.
