The Boston Patrolmen’s Union got the 14.5% (over 4 years) raise they wanted. That’s nice, I’d like a 1% raise, but hey, who’s complaining?
No, the problem is that the union [dick-]head has announced that they will picket the DNC anyway.
Excuse me? You got what you wanted so you’re going to complain about…getting it? I’m telling you, if the police discover that they’ve suddenly lost the love and trust of a lot of people, we can point to this moment as the beginning of the end. It is truly sickening. Hey Mayor Menino…aren’t you sorry you gave them their 14.5% now? It bought you…nothing.
Hey, Thomas Nee, union spokesperson, I don’t give a crap if the process leaves you “feeling betrayed”. You agreed to binding arbitration, no? So get that puss off your face and act like a man instead of a 3 year old throwing a tantrum. “I got ice cream but I didn’t get two scoops so I’m going to hold my breath until you do something about it.” Mr. Nee may be the lowest form of union slime right now. The patrolmen have said they are happy, but this guy wants to take his ball and go home because he didn’t get his two scoops.
Won’t this violate some contract terms or something, if they picket? I’d pull a Ronald Reagan and fire the lot of ’em for insubordination and playing like they’re the mafia.
