Government unions negotiate with friendly politicians over taxpayer’s money putting the public interest at odds with union interests.
Private sector unions negotiate with management, public sector unions negotiate with the people they elect. The voice of taxpayers isn’t part of negotiations unless people representing them are elected.
I ran across this on Facebook, Krystle Able is far far left so she obviously misses all of the above:
How many of those Unit 5 workers live in the district Krystle? Are those government union employees going to work to elect people who represent them or taxpayers. The answer to that one is obvious.
The Unit 5 Education Association contract expires at the end of this school year. Thanks to Krystle Able for telling people who need to be elected. If these 4 are on the Unit 5 Board of Education taxpayers will be represented. Currently the Unit 5 School Board only has one member trying to represent taxpayers: Jeremy DeHaai.
Vote April 4th or before, Unit 5 already increased property taxes but they want more money. Another referendum will be on the April ballot. They are hoping for low voter turnout like local elections in the past. Taxpayers will only be represented if you vote.

Did you know public sector unions weren’t legal until 1962 when JFK lifted the ban? He did it for political reasons, read about that here: https://www.thomasjeffersoninst.org/why-public-sector-unions-are-bad-for-the-us/
