Despite a ruling

According to Arbitrator Robert B. Hoffman:

The City failed to make any cost analysis showing what savings would be generated by these terminations.
Failed to establish the costs savings it attributed to this decision were legitimate reasons and financially efficient.
Failed to account for a myriad of costs that could substantially reduce any cost savings attributed to the terminations.
Failed to explain why it did not accept the recommendation of its concessions committee to keep experienced employees retained who were in DROP.
Failed to include in its decision one other DROP participant who was not in the bargaining unit and would have saved the City additional money.
Failed to include non-DROP employees in its decision, who had vested pensions and that would have saved the City an additional 27.4% in contributions.
Failed to provide the Union with proper contractual advance notice.

JULIO ROBAINA "LIES" again. At the May 9th Television interview Mayor Robaina said he was evaluating his legal options and considering to appeal the ruling.
