City of Tulsa and bus manufacturer company debates over lease renewal
The city of Tulsa found a 20-year-old tenant IC Bus of Oklahoma in January with a lease default
for its 1 million square feet owned property. The city has thus notified its parent company
Navistar regarding the termination of the lease on Fev 14th but the company expressed their intention
of extending the lease-up until May 29th and both parties agreed to this.
The company is a local school bus manufacturer with 1600 employees, the agreement originally
took place in late 1999 to Navistar for as long as it dutifully maintains the facility well.
The assessment carried out by Cynergy in August reported under maintenance after thoroughly
examining roofing, heating, electrical and plumbing system.
Navistar's president of operations, Phil Christman said “Over the past 20 years, we’ve been
able to create 1,600 good-paying manufacturing jobs, “We spend $750 million each year with
vendors and suppliers, and support more than 100 local businesses. We do not understand why
City officials suddenly want to break the long-term framework and threaten to evict us.”
The lease was originally drafted for a term of 15 years which could be extended by five more
years on renewal of the lease, but in case of violations of terms stated in the agreement the lease can be terminated.
Tulsa Mayor G.T Bynum said “The City of Tulsa is currently negotiating the renewal of a lease on
one million square feet of industrial work space owned by the citizens of Tulsa, The tenant has
leased that space for two decades at a total lease price of one dollar. The only thing required of
the tenant under their contract is that they properly maintain this taxpayer-owned facility so it is
“A public relations campaign launched (Tuesday) grossly mischaracterizes these
negotiations in an obvious attempt to politicize them. My response: the citizens of Tulsa will not
be played for suckers. I remain confident we can identify common ground to secure jobs and
properly maintain this facility. We’ve done so with great success during my time as mayor with
other tenants, and I see no reason why this case would be any different.”
The original lease said Navistar may have 500 employees by the end of 2001 and 1,200 by the
end of 2005, The Tulsa plant now employs 1,600, according to the company.
Plant manager Rodney Tharp said “The lease was built on the ability to provide jobs
and revenue locally, We’ve been able not only to do that, but we’ve exceeded that by about 30
The city demanded Navistar to improve those facilities that are compromised which include
painting, carpeting, extensive LED lighting, parking lot and road resurfacing and the replacement
of freight elevators.
To this Tharp said “I don’t think the value of new carpet is worth putting 1,600 jobs at risk,
putting brand-new elevators in a plant that doesn’t use elevators, I don’t know how that is going
to help John Smith out here who is having to put rivets in a bus do his job better.”
Navistar stressed on how much they have been contributing indirectly to the local workers,
the plant which manufactures 75 buses a day pays $19 per hour as starting wages while
experienced workforce get up to $32 per hour, thus contributing as much as $60 million to local
He urged the local employees to join the "Save Tulsa Jobs" campaign and express their support
to protecting their jobs.
Changes made to emergency proclamation by Stillwater mayor after small businesses faced threats
The Mayor of The Stillwater City made some required changes to the emergency safety proclamation in regards to COVID-19 on Friday after the employees of Walmart were threatened.
The emergency proclamation includes the guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by face covering. It requires businesses to ask their customers to wear face masks as other cities are following. However, Walmart customers became aggressive when asked to do the same and threaten the employees with violence. Police have responded to Walmart over the issue. Capt. Kyle Gibbs said no report was filed but there were similar instances resulted in physical assaults to the employees but now police have advised having face masks signboards posted inside the store.
“Additionally, the police department has also received an anonymous phone call threatening with firearms if they enforce the face-covering orders. The incident is still under investigation.” Gibbs said in an email.
Mayor Joyce too explained the reversal of proclamation on his social media saying that objections from individuals are common but threatening is completely not expected. He also apologized to the employees who faced the abuse. Adding to it he said that residents have to cooperate during such conditions.
