DULUTH – About 500 city employees must take 18 unpaid days off over the next year and a half as officials continue to reckon with a budget shortfall of up to $38 million due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

City staff belonging to the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Local 66 voted to approve a memorandum of understanding "to help preserve city jobs and protect the critical services Duluth-area residents deserve and demand," a news release from the union said Wednesday.

The agreement also puts a freeze on wage and salary steps through the end of 2021. It requires the City Council's approval to take effect
