Judge: Houston city, police and firefighters must get mediator

This is concerning fallout from Prop B.

HOUSTON — A  judge has ordered the city of Houston and the firefighters union to get a mediator, but not for each other.

Instead, they're being asked to mediate with Houston police. This all concerns the fallout from Prop B, the voter-approved measure that gives firefighters increased pay.

The police union filed the motion, saying Prop B impairs the police union from being able to bargain freely for the fair compensation.

Both parties have until Monday at noon to agree on a mediator.
