You have to admire a group of people that believes a city with no money should keep over paying them for performing their jobs poorly.

What are the city's options at this point? Kilpatrick mentioned earlier about imposing terms on them

When they state "City workers", who specifically does this include; sanitation, parks & rec, transit drivers, etc., all of the above? Or is this just the office & admin paper-pushers at CAY?

There are several different unions representing different groups of workers, but it seems nearly all of them are going to reject the contract. Pretty much everyone but department heads are represented.

This is going to get messy...

Oh yeah, mayoral and city council appointees are not represented either.

Read the City Budget '06-07, dummies ..... the issue was moot when the Budget was adopted. A waste of conversational air, fishwrap ink and webspace!!

Black-atcha ..... watching dummies become dumber

What I meant was during the State of the City Kilpatrick said he would impose contract terms on workers if an agreement could not be reached. I was wondering what exactly does the city have do in order to do this? Anyone familiar with labor law?
