PDC union deal

The headline "talks" of $300,000 pay raise and new holiday - but that is misleading. And not surprisingly the trolls got it all wrong especially with their talk of bonuses and management. This expenditure is about workers basic pay - not management.

The real issue is that it took union representation and a year of negotiation for employees to obtain a holiday that other city workers receive and to obtain a pretty miserable pay increase. PDC is an anti-worker, anti-union workplace. PDC workers have never had the same compensation that is received by other city workers. It is that anti-worker attitude that brought the union to PDC.

It is beyond belief the knee jerk reaction to unions.
