The fiscal crisis facing cities and states has led to increased tension between public sector unions and municipal officials. Massachusetts has been able to make progress on a reform agenda without the public protests witnessed in places like Wisconsin and Ohio. It is important that as Massachusetts continues to redefine the role and scope of government that public employee unions are seen as an ally, not a hindrance, and in the case of education a strong advocate for quality public schools. Join us for the release of a report on adopting an interest-based collective bargaining approach that, if successful, will benefit employees, cities and towns, the state, and taxpayers.
