Correction

February 04, 2003

An article in yesterday's Sun incorrectly reported the length of the contracts being sought by Baltimore County police and firefighters in talks with the county. Both groups currently have four-year contracts, but union leaders say they will seek a one-year pact so that binding arbitration - approved by voters in November - will be available in the next round of talks. The use of binding arbitration has been delayed as lawyers review a proposed amendment that would add the process to the county charter.

The Sun regrets the error.
