I think it is ludicrous to assume that collective bargaining on the part of public sector (government employee) unions is a fundamental human right. Collective bargaining on the part of private sector unions is a right precisely because it is private. But public sector employees are paid by the taxpayer (ie the voter). Their wages should be determined by the voters' elected representatives. In terms of collective bargaining procedures, the public employees have no right beyond that to petition the government, a right maintained by every U.S. citizen.
