It could be worse

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.
