UNDATED (AP) _ Employees of four Oklahoma cities and a city zoo plan to file petitions on Monday asking for union representation.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees say employees in Bartlesville, Lawton, Enid and Moore and at the Oklahoma City Zoo will file the petitions.

A new law goes into effect Monday allowing city employees in cities of 35,000 or more population to join a union.

Bartlesville city officials say employees there are not eligible to join a union because the city has fewer than 35,000 residents.
