Both Sides of the Labor Mouth

This has got to be my favorite argument that labor reps are making now that the problems are no longer deniable:

“If you incentivize and stop burning your overtime, you’ll get $6 million in the blink of an eye,” [union lawyer Joseph] Rodio said Tuesday. Officers see the loss of prized overtime as a concession.

I think it was Rodio who told Dan Yorke, the other day, that the problem is that the city of Providence was irresponsible in the salaries and overtime that it gave to union police officers. Of course, the union has fought and will fight any attempts to achieve reasonableness, but hey, that’s the system.
