Unions are supposed to practice solidarity, but what just happened in Connecticut is the opposite of that. Two unions voted to reject a deal involving multiple unions and the state. Since the deal took months to negotiate and can not be redone quickly, the state will immediately fire 7,500 workers (more than would have been laid off before the talks.)
The No votes were almost certainly mostly from senior members of the two unions who know they won’t be laid off. Thus they deliberately backstabbed everyone else reach to protect themselves. This makes them worse than the bosses. This is anti-solidarity and they are contemptible.
