Mayor Fung calls contract " fair"
School sports and music cut
May 4, RI Independence Day is paid holiday?
$25 a month for full healthcare coverage
|Never caves to union|
Cranston Mayor Alan Fung drives a hard bargain when it comes to a new contract for the city Fire fighters. Sounds like he got them down from 18 paid holidays to 15. They went from no contribution towards health care coverage to a whopping $25 a month. Fung also gave them a new 4 year contract. Why 4 years? Fung will run for governor, and the new mayor will have to deal with a new contract right in the middle of running for reelection which is not easy when you have angry, protesting union members. Watch for this contract to be a major issue for Fung in a primary. Follow DePetro.com for the latest on 2014, and listen to John DePetro on WPRO.
