Angry Judges: New York Judges Deliberate Bid To Organize
"Judges of New York, unite!
Frustrated over salaries that have been frozen for almost 10 years, a group of state Supreme Court justices are talking about starting their own union.
In an email dated April 7th that was obtained by The New York Post, Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Wayne Saitta wrote to his colleagues that 'a few of us in Brooklyn have been trying to get together an organizing effort,' but to date it has not gone anywhere.
Judge William Erlbaum expressed his support. 'This is some shit we should not eat.'"
