BOSTON – The lone vote in the House against a state budget compromise Wednesday came from Brockton.
Democratic Rep. Michael Brady, a longtime union supporter, was the only representative out of 154 who voted against a conference committee report, saying that suspending the so-called Pacheco law for three years at the
MBTA, thereby strengthening management, could hurt workers.
“I’m against taking rights away from workers,” Brady said in an interview. “I’m a big supporter of collective bargaining rights.”
