@t54r4n1 Government employee unions in general are kind of bad, given that their position is effectively a private entity that "negotiates" with the public.

@OchotonidKnight strongly disagree as a member of one; conservative members of congress would have our pay and benefits slashed at every session without one.

@OchotonidKnight @t54r4n1 do they uh not have teachers unions where you live?

@t54r4n1 the only union that beats up other unions!

@t54r4n1 this except that bad unions are what gave anti-union propagandists the ammunition they needed

make sure your union bylaws have an escape hatch for leadership going bad

@t54r4n1

The one good thing about police unions is that occasionally the police go on strike and they unintentionally demonstrate that nobody is less safe and everything is basically better.
