San Antonio Firefighters Public Safety Press Conference
Updated On: Nov 29, 2017
San Antonio Firefighters and Police Officers are family. A family that puts their lives on the line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to protect your family. Even now, with the unprecedented surge in domestic terrorism at an all time high...we will be there to protect our precious city.
To Mayor Ivy Taylor:
Here is a pledge from the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association.
We won the Lawsuit.
Accept your defeat in a sportsmanship like manner, like we teach our children.
Acknowledge it publicly by refusing to appeal the ruling and set an example for our children.
When you do, The San Antonio Professional Firefighters will commit to scheduling negotiations meetings within 30 days.
If Mayor Ivy Taylor files an appeal on the lawsuit against local Police and Firefighters, her actions may lead to undue "strife and unrest" as outlined in State Law, Chapter 174.002:
"The policy of this state is that firefighters and police officers, like employees in the private sector, should have the right to organize for collective bargaining, as bargaining is a fair and practical method for determining compensation and other conditions of employment. Denying firefighters and police officers the right to organize and bargain collectively would lead to strife and unrest, consequently injuring the health, safety and welfare of the public."
