MAYOR NUTTER doesn't quit.
On Tuesday, the city notified Common Pleas Court that it will again appeal the contract-arbitration award for Philadelphia firefighters.
In 2010, an arbitration panel issued an award for firefighters, which the city appealed. After both groups decided to send the contract back to an arbitrator, the arbitrator returned an award with most of the same terms. The city appealed again. In November, a Common Pleas judge upheld the award, which includes raises for the firefighters. That decision is now being appealed to Commonwealth Court.
