Unions Have Lost Their Way in Miami-Dade and Coral Gables
September 2, 2010 Leave a comment
Police and firefighter unions in South Florida (and in many municipalities across the US) have lost their way by refusing to negotiate salary and pension reductions and using delaying tactics to shield their unreasonable salaries and pensions.
If unions continue to insist on inciting the ire of voters and taxpayers then there is strong possibility that our union friends face will encounter the worst of both worlds– fewer numbers of firefighters and police AND lower salaries and pensions.
The days of rising property values are a thing of the past so cities will not have the revenues to maintain existing salaries and pension packages of firefighters and police. Time for union leaders and their member to wake up.
