Heavens to Betsy

The NY Daily News is horrified that the NYS legislature seems to favor labor-friendly changes to the Taylor Law.

The legislature voted overwhelmingly, with only a single dissent, to penalize municipal employers who fail to bargain in good faith, specifically by raising salaries. They also voted to roll back the draconian 2-for-1 penalties. We'll see what happens in the Senate.

The News urges Pataki to veto the measure, but with margins like this, his veto would make little difference.

It's noteworthy that the News selected the UFT contract as a positive result of the government's ability to stall contract negotiations endlessly with no consequences whatsover on management's side. For those wondering just how badly Unity sold them out, this ought to answer loud and clear.
