Pro and Con arguments for and Against the Measure

From the supporters: Resolves a five-year stall on the firefighter fair pay contract. The City has taken an incredible five years to complete a simple pay contract with our firefighters. Proposition C pushes the city and firefighters into binding arbitration—an inexpensive way to end disputes quickly and fairly without expensive lawsuits.
From the opponents: Prop. C Specifically gives ONLY one Union, Firefighters Local 624, the right to unilaterally compel binding arbitration. Essentially, this Union unfairly gets their own referee, who decides what the rest of us will pay for--no matter the other budget considerations.
