A chorus of boos greeted Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter Tuesday during the opening of the city's new $6.7 million firehouse.
As he walked into the new energy efficient firehouse for a ribbon cutting ceremony, the boos from dozens of protesters from the union representing local firefighters could be heard.
Union members say they are upset at the mayor over a long running dispute for a new contract.
The city says the new firehouse is one of the only "green" stations in the city.
Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers says the station also offers additional rooms for community programming.
Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours late tonight and again Friday afternoon.
Friday is still humid but by Saturday much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall. Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.
