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.

You gotta love chicken crap Union whiners who refuse to let the Free Market determine their worth.
If they spent as much time working as they do in court trying to get a free ride, half our problems would be solved.
Don’t these spineless fools have any pride? How do they go through life living such a life of dependancy and Entitlement?
They are like the 40 year old son living in their mother’s basement, never leaving home.
Yup, it is time for some “tough love”. It’s time the son moves out of momma’s house and gets a place of his own in the big bad world.
Get ready for the crying and whining as Council 94 is pulled from the public tit.

George, maybe you’re right. We need to fire the bums. After all, John DePetro may be needing a job soon.
