“Unions kill a smart arbitration proposal in Montgomery County”

From the Washington Post of July 29, 2016:

“OVER THE past six years, wages for Montgomery County’s about 9,000 public employees — police, firefighters, budget analysts, clerks, librarians, bus drivers, jail guards and others — have grown between 25 and 31 percent. That increase, nearly three times the inflation rate over the same period, is much greater than that enjoyed by most public- and private-sector workers, including federal workers. Montgomery taxpayers are on the hook for those raises, mainly through their property taxes, which will spike 9 percent this year.”

The proposal had its genesis in the Organizational Reform Commission report submitted to the County Council in 2011.  MCTL President Fidler was a member of the Commission.
