California Union Tricks Same as WEAC's

Obviously, there was a playbook.

... this piece in today's New York Times makes it well worth your time. It tells of how public sector union leaders in California went from town to town in what became known as "Operation Domino" to bully one town after another into increasing pension benefits for public workers. After each victory, they would tell the neighboring towns that unless they increased pension benefits, their cops and firefighters would leave. Eventually, all the dominoes would fall.

It's the same game WEAC played with school districts back in the 1970's, folks.
