The union at Jackson Health System won’t budge on being asked to add a $50 increase to their biweekly premium contribution (“Jackson unions say no to more pay cuts,” Daily Dose, April 22)? And as a result a birthing center will close and a bunch of this group’s co-workers will lose their jobs? This is a classic example of the madness that unions are trying to force on hospitals, governments and other employers right now.
At this time in America’s history when double-digit millions of Americans are unemployed or severely underemployed and untold millions of Americans who are working and are not unionized have seen severe decreases in their income, the union cannot agree to pay $50 biweekly for a benefit millions of Americans would cry to have access to?
I believe that union behaviors like this will lead to an end result of ever-increasing amounts
of backlash against them. Good luck with that. Sorel Dietzler
