NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - New Haven has paid $109,000 to settle disputes with two corporation counsel attorneys who said they were fired for trying to organize a union.

The New Haven Register reports (http://bit.ly/1EkbhBZ ) that signed separation and release agreements it obtained in an open records request say Felipe Pastore Briseno received a settlement of $70,000 and James Del Visco was paid $39,000.

In the agreement the city denies all allegations outlined in the labor board complaints claiming the city fired Briseno and Del Visco due to their efforts to form an attorneys’ union.

Mayor Toni Harp said she’s pleased the city resolved all legal claims instead of pursuing what could have led to lengthy litigation.

The initial complaint alleged that the city “dominated or interfered with the formation, existence or administration” of the attorney’s union.
