Gov. Brian Sandoval has submitted a bill (SB 41) almost a month ago that would eliminate mandatory collective bargaining for local government employers and the unions aren’t having a cow over and most conservatives don’t know the proposal exists. How’d this one get by so many folks?
Meanwhile, you gotta love what’s going on in North Las Vegas these days. City Councilman Richard Cherchio is a retired postal worker and union boss. Yet he’s being hammered and targeted for defeat in the upcoming municipal elections by local government employee unions who are ticked off at Cherchio for backing plans to lay off city workers unless the unions make significant concessions in order to balance the city’s budget.
No honor among thieves?
And finally, “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 45% of Americans now at least somewhat favor unions for public employees, while the identical number (45%) are opposed to them. In May of last year, 53% of Adults favored unions for public employees, while 37% opposed them.”
Looks like government employee and union boss greed is finally catching up with them.
