City union calls Mayor Nutter a Grinch, will taunt with carols Thursday

We're not sure how the lyrics of "The 12 Days of Nutter" go but we're pretty sure the mayor won't enjoy them when AFSCME District Council 47 members sing the song outside of City Hall Thursday at noon. The union, which represents white-collar city workers, will also circulate a season's greeting of sorts -- a card that makes the mayor look like The Grinch of Dr. Seuss fame.

We're not sure how the lyrics of "The 12 Days of Nutter" go but we're pretty sure the mayor won't enjoy them when AFSCME District Council 47 members sing the song outside of City Hall Thursday at noon.  The union, which represents white-collar city workers, will also circulate a season's greeting of sorts -- a card that makes the mayor look like The Grinch of Dr. Seuss fame.

Nutter has been engaged in a long-running contract battle with DC47 and District Council 33, which represents the city's blue-collar workers.  The unions, which have been working without a new contract since July 2009, held a candlelight vigil and protest outside of Nutter's home in the Wynnefield neighborhood last month.

Nutter's administration wants the unions to accept changes to work rules and benefits.  The unions have said they will make no concessions in new contracts.
