University Forced to Close Classes Over Union Power

The title says it all. Students will suffer because of a “union-only” scheme called a project labor agreement.  Ted Goodman has the story in the Daily Caller.

The University of Massachusetts, Boston is cutting more than 20 summer courses as the school desperately attempts to manage a $30 million operating deficit that is due in part to a project labor agreement that requires unions to be the “sole and exclusive” source of job-site labor.

The university has been plagued by controversy, ranging from declining enrollment to lackluster fundraising, but the project labor agreement is one reason why the university must now cut classes in the summer, and into the fall, reports The Boston Globe.
