Cache GOP chair sees public sector unions as conflicts of interest

A marathon debate against proposed anti-union legislation is going on in the Wisconsin State Assembly. The measure would strip most public workers of the right to form unions.The chairman of the Cache County Republican Party says Democrats were wrong to leave Wisconsin in order to avoid a vote. David James says he personally sees a problem with public sector unions.”It’s an inherent conflict of interest,” James claims. “When you have unions that come in and elect people, who then directly influence or determine their salary, their benefits, their bargaining rights and everything else and they then pay money to the unions and the unions pay to get those people elected that will give them money. It’s always a problem.”James says when it comes time to negotiate everyone should sit down and talk. He says it will be interesting to see how the public reacts to the Wisconsin standoff.
