Suit To Be Filed Over Contract Extension Law

Rhode Island municipal leaders are set to file suit today to challenge a new law affecting public employee union contracts. The mayors and town administrators are set for a  news conference in North Providence to explain their suit against the General Assembly and Governor Gina Raimondo. The bill extends those contracts indefinitely after they expire. Proponents said the law was aimed at preventing unilateral pay cuts during contract disputes.
