VP Joe Biden in Philadelphia today for firefighters convention

Vice President Joe Biden will be in Center City this afternoon to address the International Association of Firefighters National Convention at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Biden, a staunch union supporter, will give remarks to nearly 4,000 professional firefighters across the country. His arrival comes one week after local firefighters union sued the city to compel it to abide by a new arbitration award.

In addition to Biden’s 1 p.m. scheduled stop, the Phillies are playing a day game against the Brewers at Citizens Bank Park, so motorists could see some delays on Interstate 95.
