The Coalition of State Employee Unions has issued a new report titled Pure Michigan Waste, detailing areas where the State has failed to collaborate with its workers on being more efficient and accountable to Michigan taxpayers. Highlights include:
- Management ratios are too high and getting worse
- Outsourcing to private contractors is rampant and often costs more
- State administration failing to truly partner with employees/unions on efficiencies
The new report builds off the Coalition Unions’ 2011 New Solutions report, and tracks the State’s progress over the past 2 years.
The Coalition has also launched a new website, WorkingforMichigan.org, which further discusses these concerns.
