No matter what we think of the leadership of UNISON they still have a way to go before reaching the level of some American unions. Please find below, an extract from a bargaining survey sent out to members of the Service Employees International Union. On second thoughts don’t show this to Dave Prentis – it may give him ideas.
In order to address the concessions the Governor has imposed I would be willing to agree to the following:
- “x” number of temporary layoff days
- accept a 0% wage increase
- take a permanent pay cut
- take a pay cut for this contract period only with a return to current wage levels at the end of the contract.
- None of the above, I would rather have the state invoke permanent layoffs to address the budget shortfall.
