District 5 Report

3. Chickasha – Nothing New
4. Duncan – Still in Negotiations, Chief resignation effective
5. Lawton – Attended arbitration case that Rick put on November 15th and 16th, on a member being discharged for off duty conduct. Hearing went well, Rick did a good job with the case and I believe we have a good chance of prevailing.
6. Newcastle – Met with City and told them what we had to have to be able to reach an agreement on the 2010/2011 contract and they declined to accept our proposals so we invoked the process and informed them we will move forward and take outstanding issues to interest arbitration. We named Jim Long as our interest arbitrator and the city named Ambre Gooch as their interest arbitrator.
