At last, the DNC produces real progress. . .
. . . not for the Dems, mind you, but progress nonetheless:
BOSTON - Boston firefighters reached a contract agreement Sunday with the city after a marathon session of negotiations, averting union picketing at delegation welcoming parties for the Democratic National Convention.
The firefighters were the last big city union left without a contract. In the days leading up to the convention on Monday, there had been concerns that union strife might interfere with the four-day event.
I hope our brothers in Boston got a fair deal.ullrichk

Im happy for the police and fire.
But I wish they didnt settle till the convention was over.........I would love to see if that rat fink double talking Kennedy and other delagates would have put there money where mouth was and not crossed the picket line like they promised.I dont suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

Boy, if there ever was a misleading thread title.......... I thought maybe the world would get lucky and the Dems would disband...... Oh well, one can dream.... Seriously, best wishes to the brothers in Boston, hopefully this will improve their position. I also hope that they are successfull in removing a few incumbents, next election. Politicians who refuse to negotiate in good faith should become ex politicians next time out.Never use Force! Get a Bigger Hammer.
