Updated 3:30 p.m. on March 27: In response to Mr. Steele's comments on "The Source" today, City Attorney Andy Segovia issued the following statement: 

“There was nothing illegal about what the City did today. We advised the union we would be making a proposal on wages and healthcare, and for the 11th time they refused to meet. We welcome the union’s feedback at a scheduled bargaining session.”  

Updated 11:20 a.m. on March 27: The City of San Antonio offered a health care and wage contract proposal to the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association on Tuesday morning. 

The proposal includes a 12 percent increase in wages through 2021 and offering zero dollar healthcare premiums for firefighters, but will not include spouses and children.

The current 10-year "evergreen clause" would be reduced to six months and the proposal eliminates the city’s contribution to the fire and police legal trust fund. The City of San Antonio does not plan to drop the ongoing lawsuit, contrary to the fire union's wishes.
