LANSING (WWJ) – Governor Snyder is criticizing a deal reached between the city of Detroit and police and firefighters.

WWJ’s Tim Skubick says the governor’s administration is not happy with the deal negotiated between the city and fire fighters and police unions.

“We don’t think they are the best answer at this time, there are other things that need to be done to make sure the city is in the best position for the long-term,” said Snyder.

“It would be best if they weren’t ratified,” said Snyder. “That’s not going to happen overnight … The right question is; I think people should go back to the table – I appreciate from the unions side, I’m not trying to minimize that, they have been working hard on doing this.”

But Skubick says the Mayor Bing does not want to go back to the bargaining table.
