Every year, it seems, the Steve Jeltz contract negotiations are among the thorniest the Phillies have to deal with. Once again, however, the sides stopped short of an arbitration hearing. The Phillies announced yesterday that Jeltz had agreed to a one-year contract for $410,000, plus a potential $60,000 in performance bonuses. Last season, Jeltz made a base salary of $250,000, plus $5,000 for appearing in half the Phillies games. He batted a career-high .243 and had filed for $500,000 in arbitration.

The local firefighters' union has given notice that it intends to go to arbitration rather than accept the borough's offer for the renewal of its two-year contract. The current two-year contract expires at midnight tonight. "It's not to be taken as an adversarial stance," said John Remillard, vice president of the firefighters' union. "We're very hopeful that we can work this out. " But neither side is holding its breath. Negotiators for the borough and the firefighters have not met in several weeks, and no new meetings have been scheduled.

After the expansion draft, after the winter meetings, after all the other moves were made, Phillies general manager Lee Thomas took two final steps last offseason. Veteran reliever Larry Andersen and journeyman outfielder Jim Eisenreich signed free-agent contracts with the Phillies. Both played key roles as the surprising Phillies went all the way to the World Series. Today, both players are free agents again after the Phillies declined to offer salary arbitration. That means that, if they don't re-sign, the Phillies will receive no compensation.

Phillies free-agent centerfielder Aaron Rowand almost certainly will be offered arbitration by tonight's deadline, MLB.com reported yesterday on the Phillies' Web site. The report described the move, which must be made by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, as procedural to guarantee that they get a compensatory draft pick should he sign with another team. According to the report, Rowand is a Type A free agent, which would entitle the Phillies to both a first-round pick and a "sandwich" pick between the first and second rounds from the team that signs Rowand.

Chicago Cubs righthander Mark Prior voided the final year of his contract, making him eligible for salary arbitration. Prior's agent, John Boggs, said yesterday that the pitcher notified the team of his decision on Nov. 29. His deal, agreed to in 2001 after he was drafted, allowed him to void the contract after 2004 or 2005, but only if he had accumulated enough service time to be eligible for arbitration. He just missed having enough service time after 2004. His first contract had called for a $2.75 million salary next year, and he is likely to earn far more after arbitration.

An arbitrator has ruled that the School District of Philadelphia owes money to former nonteaching assistants who took assignments in special-education classrooms. Ralph Teti, an attorney for the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, received the arbitrator's decision Friday. He said the ruling would affect 50 to 60 staffers and could cost the district more than $1 million. District spokesman Fernando Gallard said he could not comment because it was an active legal matter. In the past, the district has appealed some arbitration decisions to the Court of Common Pleas.

The Phillies avoided arbitration with Freddy Galvis by signing him Wednesday to a one-year, $2 million deal, according to multiple reports. Galvis, who made $513,500 in 2015, was arbitration-eligible for the first time in his career. The 26-year-old shortstop is widely viewed as a placeholder for the team's top prospect, J.P. Crawford, who could assume the starting job by 2017. Galvis posted a .645 OPS last season in a career-high 603 plate appearances. The Phillies have two remaining players - Jeremy Hellickson and Jeanmar Gomez - eligible for arbitration.

Two city principals fired in connection with a state-test cheating scandal have won arbitration rulings and may be rehired by the Philadelphia School District. According to the arbitrator, the district conclusively proved in both cases that cheating happened at Tilden Middle School and Lamberton Elementary School. But it did not prove that Michelle Burns and Marla Travis-Curtis participated directly in the improprieties. Burns, who led Tilden in 2009-10 but moved on to run Kensington Urban Education Academy, won reinstatement as a principal and is due back pay minus wages from a 60-day suspension, plus reimbursement of any expenses paid because of lost benefits.

IN A MAJOR BLOW to the school district, an independent arbitrator has ordered the district to restore a full-time counselor to every school and to give back pay to laid-off counselors who should have been recalled based on seniority. The ruling, issued last week, says the district violated its contract with the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers in the fall of 2013 when it failed to recall laid-off counselors in seniority order, failed to assign a full-time counselor to every school and failed to assign recalled counselors to schools of their choice, based on seniority.

AN OFFICER twice fired by Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey is suing the city's top cop in federal court. John Hargraves III contends that Ramsey "used a disciplinary system in a way that impacts minorities," according to the suit, filed Friday. He's seeking $100,000 in damages for the "mental anguish, humiliation, embarrassment and extreme emotional distress" caused by his second firing, made official in November. Hargraves lost his job in West Philly's 16th District in 2012 after he was charged with domestic violence against his wife.

The Phillies were expected to tender contracts Tuesday to their three arbitration-eligible players, although Antonio Bastardo, Ben Revere and Domonic Brown have the same uncertain fate as the rest of an unsettled Phillies roster. Bastardo, Revere and Brown could combine to earn $10 million in salary next season. The Phillies have until February to reach agreements with the three players before an arbiter can intervene. The Phillies attempted to trade Bastardo, who endorsed such a move, last July but could not find a match.
