So, OK, the cops ARE going to pay 25% of their health insurance premiums. This “concession” was probably made so that they could keep robbing taxpayers via Quinn Bill payments – $5 million for Worcester, since the state is no longer paying half the bill.
Worcester needs to STOP funding the Quinn Bill – just like the state of Massachusetts has.
(Just a thought: Will the WPS teachers follow suit? Will they pay 25% of their health insurance premiums? Or will they be the only municipal employee hold-outs?)
