Mayor Turner’s Letter Following Meeting With Fire Union President

For the second time in as many weeks, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner met with Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association President Marty Lancton to discuss the implementation and proposed phase-in of Proposition B on April 15, 2019.

In a letter sent to Lancton following the meeting, Mayor Turner wrote “The city is committed to all parties returning to the table to work out a collective bargaining agreement. That will require the parties sitting down to negotiate terms that are not covered by Prop B. At the same time, the city must move forward with balancing its budget before the end of June.”
