To the editor:
Thank goodness Gov. Brownback and his esteemed hard right conservative GOP colleagues are trying to save all you hard-working public servants from yourselves. If they have their way, House Bill 2023 will abolish the payroll deduction for union dues and donations. I wonder how many of you think this is just the help you will need upon your next labor contract negotiation?
But wait. There will be no negotiations either. No wage increases? No health and welfare benefit negotiation? No pension negotiation? I hope every one of you remember how the governor, and those duly elected representatives have helped you when next election time comes around.
