Gov. Charlie Baker: Cap sick leave on top earners, not rank and file

Unions on Wednesday began to push back against Gov. Charlie Baker's proposal to cap public employee sick time, a bill that faces major hurdles to pass before the end of this year's legislative session.

"We believe the Baker administration should begin by focusing on the top earners in the administration before looking at the rank-and-file state employees," said Jim Durkin, director of legislation, political action and communications for AFSCME Council 93.
