“I’m going to make all the state employees very happy,” Schraa said during a town meeting, in response to a question about pay raises. “I can’t be specific, but the budget does have a pay increase for all state employees. I can’t give you a percentage, because there’s some factors that are involved regarding some of the union contracts, some of the bargaining units that are actually still open.”
Nothing in there about a restoration of bargaining rights, though. My question: Will they care? Is this part of the strategy? Take a bunch of stuff away and then a couple years later, return a little money and they'll forget all about the bargaining rights.
Seems like a pretty good strategy to me.
Anybody watching House of Cards?
