Huge Labor Payback: Nevada Gov Grants Government Unions Bargaining Rights
Since 1965 there has been a law on the books prohibiting monopoly bargaining for public employees in Nevada. Governor Sisolak recently signed legislation granting government employees the right negotiate wages, pensions and work rules for approximately 20,000 employees. Check out the story on the Wall Street Journal by the Editorial Board.
In effect the unions will now be on both sides of the negotiating table as they demand more money from the Governor they helped elect. Taxpayers won’t be represented because Mr. Sisolak will want to reward his union benefactors. This is why public unions differ from industrial unions that negotiate with a single private employer, and why Franklin Roosevelt opposed unions for public workers.
