PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Rhode Island’s landmark pension law is heading to trial.
Gov. Lincoln Chafee and General Treasurer Gina Raimondo said Friday the state and its major labor unions have ended court-ordered mediation talks after eligible police officers voted to reject a proposed pension settlement. The two sides are now set to head to trial Sept. 15.
