Unions to face off with Montgomery Co. Council, residents over raises

Monday - 4/22/2013, 6:20am  ET

The Montgomery County Council on Monday will debate three polarizing contract agreements that would give thousands of union employees double-digit pay raises over two years, the Washington Examiner reported.

The three agreements would give raises to most unionized county workers, firefighters and police officers, and would cost the county an estimated $105.3 million over two years.

The unions struck the deals with County Executive Isiah Leggett after months of bargaining.
