GLOBE: Flaherty wants city workers on state med plan

The Globe reported today that city councilor and mayoral candidate Michael Flaherty supports placing Boston city workers on the state's group insurance plan, claiming that it will save Boston $8 million.

"Flaherty, a city councilor at large, said yesterday that about $8 million could be saved annually by having city workers join the state-run Group Insurance Commission and having retirees switch to Medicare."
