Seven City Water Light and Power workers who had been facing layoffs are now off the hook.
The State Journal-Register reports the city has reached a deal with their union to avoid the layoffs.
A total of eleven workers received layoff notices this month as part of a cost-cutting plan that was scheduled to take effect unless unions agreed to furlough days instead.
The newspaper did not indicate what kind of deal was struck to avoid the seven layoffs.
Talks are continuing with a second union about the other four employees.
