Monarch firefighters are back in the pink after a compromise was reached over fundraiser tee shirts.
The district board had banned the Breast Cancer Awareness shirts over concerns that they didn't properly identify the firefighters as Monarch employees and objections to the union logo.
The board decided Tuesday that pink shirts would be okay, if they were redesigned.
That didn't happen. But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that on Wednesday, Fire Chief Tom Vineyard and board president Robin Harris worked out a deal. The firefighters can wear the tee shirts with the union logo, but they must also wear an ID badge.
