Union bosses effectively share power with elected officials, Not only because they fund official’s campaigns, But now because they now share power by law
FDR and earlier progressive politicians warned about this and would be turning over in their graves in light of what is now happening. Legislation requiring crony capitalist government is sure recipe for corruption.
(From The Washington Examiner)
In the public sector, instead of allowing elected officials to respond and adapt quickly to crises such as COVID-19, monopoly bargaining forces local governments to “bargain” with union officials over many changes, even those necessary to stem the virus’s spread. Not only does this block needed reforms, but it is also inherently anti-democratic, forcing those elected to set public policy instead to “negotiate” it with a special interest group whose aims often conflict with the public’s interests.
