MIAMI TWP, Ohio (WDTN) - Miami Township firefighters want trustees to slow down a planned merger with Miamisburg.

Union officials say the June 11th merger date is too soon.

They want more time to learn about the plan before signing an agreement.

The Miami Township firefighters' union filed a grievance asking that residents vote on the merger before it moves forward.

"It's their tax dollars, their money. We work for the citizens. We feel they should have a say into this merger," said Bryan Shaw, Local 2951 President.

Trustees still need to weigh in on the grievance once they return from the holiday weekend.
