From the you’ve got to be kidding me file:
A Connecticut town must provide their union workers free coffee and milk, according to a ruling from the State Board of Labor Relations.
The board also ordered town leaders to reinstate “Dress Down Fridays” for the union clerical and custodial workers.
The dispute involved the town of Orange and the local chapter of the United Public Service Employees Union.
The board determined the town retaliated against the union members for comments they made at a finance meeting in 2009.
Maybe I’m just a crank, but this incident should be the last straw. This is not the little guy fighting the man, this is just flat out extortion. Do we really need any other examples of why public sector unions need to go the way of the Dodo?
