DETROIT (WKZO) -- A coalition of labor leaders and elected officials gathered Monday to denounce Detroit’s bankruptcy.

Representatives from the United Auto Workers, Detroit City Council, Michigan AFSCME and Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano were among those on hand.  Many of the concerns centered on Detroit Emergency Financial Manager Kevyn Orr’s proposed cuts to retirees’ pensions and health care.

Michigan AFSCME Council 25 President Al Garret says bankruptcy is not the solution and is considering filing an objection to the city’s bankruptcy on the basis that Orr did not fulfill his requirement to negotiate in good faith with creditors.
