CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Chicago firefighters could soon have a new contract.

The union's executive board accepted the city's latest offer on Wednesday. The board is recommending that firefighters also approve the deal.

The union president said the negotiations were long, but both sides got a fair settlement.

A city spokesman called the deal a responsible approach that pays firefighters and protects taxpayers.

About 5,000 firefighters will vote on the new contract.
