YET ANOTHER QUINN BILL UPDATE SJC WILL LIKELY HEAR CASE IN NOVEMBER
The most recent development is that the Massachusetts Municipal Association has filed an Amicus brief in the case defending the city. This brief is amazing in that the MMA’s counsel waxes poetic about the virtues of bargaining over EVERYTHING. This is the same MMA that for over 30 years has claimed that it CANNOT bargain about most things – that everything is “an inherent managerial right.” The MMA saying we should bargain everything is like Michele Bachmann saying something sane. It’s like the Boston Globe saying that Police Details are great. It’s like Snookie saying she thinks sobriety is way cool. You get the idea – it’s a complete 180.
We’re getting ready for, and looking forward to, the argument. As always, we’ll keep you posted.
