Mayor Turner Tells HFD They Better Repay The City The Raises Paid To Them


Prop B was ruled unconstitutional last month, so Turner is demanding the money back.

Turner says that the money that was paid to firefighters on May 7 in order comply with Proposition B must be paid back because “the city cannot give a gift.”The money given to the firefighers were not a “gift”.It was approved by the citizens of the city in a vote.

Turner says if he wanted to, the city has the right to take the money back immediately, but instead he says he’ll be a nice and let that money act as a credit on future negotiations with the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association.

Marty Lancton, president of the HPFFA, tweeted “the Mayor is once again blurring the lines between what is required by the law under collective bargaining and his political campaign, where anything goes.If any of this was legitimate, he would put it in writing and follow the law."
