The head of the San Antonio Firefighters Association told a group of neighborhood leaders Monday that the union will not go back to the bargaining table with the city until after voters decide on 3 Charter amendments in November.
Chris Steele made those remarks at the Northeast Neighborhood Alliance meeting where the union discussed and debated the Charter amendments with Secure San Antonio’s Future, a group against the Charter amendments.
The charter amendments, put forward by the union, include limiting the pay of the city manager as well as limiting how long they can serve to 8 years.
Forcing the city to go to third party arbitration if contract terms can’t be reached. The third Charter amendment would reduce the number of signatures it takes to get a ballot measure on the ballot.
