Judge Hurst Denies Council 94’s Restraining Order
With the exemption of approximately one hundred state employees in the judiciary, Superior Court Judge Patricia Hurst yesterday denied Council 94’s request for a restraining order to halt Governor Carcieri’s Executive Order pertaining to health premium co-shares. An appeal of the Executive Order on the basis of an unfair labor practice is pending in front of the state Labor Relations Board; however, the Governor announced this morning that the new premium co-share percentage will be implemented immediately and retroactively to August 7.
