AFSCME’s Saunders Slams Lack of Communication in Detroit’s Rush to Bankruptcy

July 23, 2013

Before Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) and his hand-picked emergency manager Kevyn D. Orr rushed the city’s bankruptcy filing to federal court last week, they refused to sit down and discuss the future of the city’s workers and retirees, AFSCME President Lee Saunders said this morning on the Bill Press Show. He told Press:

They have not sat down and talked with the union at all in Detroit. They have refused to do so, to talk about how these issued can be resolved.  They have said they’ve attempted to have these kinds of discussions. That is a bold faced lie.
