Someone in the media finally got it right: "...unions lost POWER to bargain over benefits, etc." Congratulations to Kimber Solana, whoever you are. All other media references are to loss of "rights." The unions have lost none of their RIGHTS. They have lost power...power over their employers and taxpayers to extract excessive money from them.
Not that they have given up all that excess though. I am counting 8 weeks a year total of vacation, sick days and holidays for Mt Pleasant employees. I have never heard of anyone in the private sector getting anything close to that.
