"The bad news was the unions..."

I was looking at the official minutes from some recent meetings of the Sterling Board of Selectmen and I came across this summary of the 2010 budget from the April 1 meeting:
The good news was that there would be no layoffs and no pay cuts.

The bad news was the unions, which ultimately cost the town money and the school budget that increases yearly.
The police, firemen, and DPW workers in town are the "bad news." With this attitude from our elected and appointed officials, I'm guessing labor negotiations are a real hoot.
