MOI COGITATES that it may be that the teachers striking in Wisconsin are in violation of the terms of their collective bargaining agreement. And, as Lyle puts it over ‘t Joe’s place, if you bargain collectively, you can be fired collectively.
So… What if the State of Wisconsin were to terminate the union contract for egregious breach and then immediately offer to hire the members back individually at the same pay grade, working conditions, etc. EXCEPT the concessions currently on the table?
On the condition that the teachers be back in their classrooms tomorrow or face termination for cause…?
How long d’ya think the union’d last in that case?
