California public union OKs strike authorization | U.S. | Reuters
This could be a blessing in disguise for California. If SEIU strikes, the Governator could fire the whole sorry lot of them (and being fired that way would probably mean no need to pay the parasites unemployment), while creating 95,000 immediate job openings to pull people off the unemployment rolls. Not to mention busting one of the more parasitical unions outside the UAW.SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California's largest state employees' union voted on Saturday to approve a strike authorization measure to protest furloughs of state workers and pressure state officials to ratify its labor contract.
A spokesman for Service Employees International Union Local 1000 said a strike was not imminent but that the vote authorized union officers to initiate certain job actions, including a strike if necessary.
