Recall the union violence threatened and inflicted in Wisconsin when Governor Scott Walker (R) was working to break union strangleholds on the state government and local school districts.
Now, in nearby Illinois, we get this.
The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union sent a memo to its members expressing fear that in the face of union intransigence in negotiations with the State’s government, Governor Bruce Rauner (R) might use the National Guard and retired state workers to keep the government open should the AFSCME decide to strike.
Of what is the union afraid? That the work might actually get done, despite the union’s extortion attempt strike?
Or that the Guard might inflict violence on the strikers? If this, then it seems the union is projecting.
