Tulsa police, firefighters face layoffs

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police, firefighters and some civilian workers are preparing to learn if they will be laid off because of the city's ongoing budget crisis.
Meetings are set for Friday with 147 firefighters and 155 officers, as well as 14 civilian police workers, at which they will receive layoff notices.
Union leaders and city leaders are continuing to negotiate in hopes of avoiding the layoffs. The layoff notices could be recalled if the negotiations succeed.
The city's 2,400 nonsworn employees have voted to accept 65 layoffs instead of a 5.2 percent pay cut.
