For the ninth time, the city has sent a certified letter to attorneys representing the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association to request the union meet with city negotiators to come up with a new contract between the parties. Mayor Ron Nirenberg made the announcement Wednesday during a press conference at city hall. Nirenberg spoke from behind a podium with a large illuminated clock on top of it. In bright red numbers, the clock showed the number of days and hours — and counting — that have passed since the fire union contract expired on Sept. 30, 2014. “The clock is ticking still — 1,254 days later," Nirenberg said. A court-ordered mediation ended in an impasse last year after the mediator determined the two parties could not reach a deal.
