  • Unionization is But Half Equation
    Pennywise
    Aside from the many positive aspects of unionization and a CBA, there remains one repeating scenario that should scare the daylights out of every American. Under representation, employees facing discipline, serous discipline e.g. drunk at work, drugs at work, spouse beaters, theives, gross security violations, will all be agressively represented by the union. The union will even agree that termination (and possiby prosecution) are quite appropriate and justified, however, they'll press onward " Hey we gotta do what we gotta do!, taking a pristinely clean personnel action to the appellate level. There my friends lies the rub...there is essentially nothing an agency can do to win before these administrative adjudicators and their inexplicable distain for federal management. The public would stand slackjawed in disbelief if they witnessed but one arbitration or FLRB case and the twisted logic, disengenuous gobbledegoop that these remarkable people manufacture from their parallel universes. Consequently, the dope dealing, absentee TSA worker who violated the highest of security protocols because he was under the influence of something...you guessed it! "Return to his previous position, recipient of all back pay and allowances.." You know the drill. Why this bizarre process is so flawed is sad, for taxpayers, for public safety agencies trying to protect Americans and for the many employees who shake their heads when these employment malignancies return to the workplace. Are you frightened yet? You should be.
