A Marlborough fundraiser for lieutenant governor candidate Tim Murray has been cancelled due to concerns that he would have to cross a picket line of city workers.
Marlborough Mayor Nancy Stevens and city employees unions have been at odds over the terms of city workers' labor contract for several months. Stevens said earlier this week that talks stalled over employee health care contributions.
Stevens announced the cancellation of the event, planned for tomorrow night at Coral Seafoods, in a press release.
