Lawyers Want More Money For Public Defenders

Public defenders are asking for a  raise and bargaining rights as state employees. 

A group of attorneys  belonging to the Committee for Public Counsel Services rallied outside  the Roderick Ireland Courthouse in Springfield  on Monday to support legislation which would allow the agency's  employees to unionize. 

Similar rallies were held in Worcester and  Boston.
