This post gave me a bit more detail on the union position. Primarily, most other city unions had been given the same deal and this one feels it was being given much less. So, they want to be treated fairly and expect the same deal as everyone else. I understand that, but that’s not a green light to demand crazy things. Be the ones to stand up against this ridiculous part of the deal that the other unions have and expect some other concession in return.
While I’m sure this sick bank would represent a large new expense for the city, to me it’s more of a issue of principle. It seems obvious the union wants more vacation days but they’re trying to sneak it in by labeling it as sick days. If you want more vacation days at least be willing to come out and say it.
