Oklahoma City to fight arbitrator's ruling on fire union

The city asked the arbitrators to reconsider that ruling, claiming the arbitrators overstepped their legal authority.

The neutral arbitrator in the case, Pedro Molina, sent the city a ruling Tuesday rejecting the city’s request to reconsider. Earlier Tuesday, the city council voted to challenge the arbitrators in Oklahoma County District Court if they made such a ruling.

Assistant City Attorney Dick Mahoney said Molina’s ruling isn’t official yet because the city hasn’t received a copy signed by a second arbitrator, but he said he expects the union-appointed arbitrator will sign the order.

"It looks like we are heading to court,” Assistant City Manager M.T. Berry said.

A spokesman for the fire union said he had not seen the arbitrator’s ruling Tuesday afternoon.
