    District 5 Report


    January 2011


    Ricky Burns


    1.    Anadarko – Had a member selected on a random drug test and member failed drug test, member is currently in rehab and City has agreed to wait until member is out of rehab before conducting any type of disciplinary action.


    2.    Altus - Nothing New


    3. Chickasha – Nothing New


      4.    DuncanUnion conducted a vote on new contract terms 

          during special union meeting. Union members voted to   

          approve the contract terms the city had proposed which      

          included no raises but did include language in the   

          promotional policy that I am being told allows the city to

          reorganize the department as they see fit. I informed the         

          President and another member of the local that I believe

          the vote they conducted was not valid and did not meet the

          requirements to ratify the contract however I believe they

          are moving forward with it to have the council vote to

          ratify on January 11th.


    5.    Lawton – Filed a grievance on promotional policy and waiting for response from Chief.


    6.    Newcastle – Dates set for April on Interest Arbitration, attended investigative meeting for member who was accused of arriving to work intoxicated and also attended pre-d hearing for member, the city suspended the member for 5 shifts without pay and ordered him to go to counseling for substance abuse, wrote a grievance for their president who submitted it to the interim fire chief based on the fact that the city did not follow the policy on testing for substances under the reasonable suspicion article. After submitting the grievance more evidence surrounding the circumstance came to light and the grievant subsequently asked the president to withdraw the grievance.   


    7.    Mustang – Nothing New


    8.    Frederick - Nothing New
