About Time

From the LVRJ:
Clark County management has ordered Martin Bassick, president of the Service Employees International Union Local 1107, to report for work at a county job in a move that reflects the county’s interpretation of a new state law concerning paid leave for union representatives.
The county’s human resources department notified Bassick in a letter Thursday to report at his county public works job at 8 a.m. Monday, according to correspondence obtained by the Review-Journal. The letter cites a bill that the Legislature passed this session and Gov. Brian Sandoval signed into law. An attorney for the SEIU, the county’s largest union, disputes the county’s interpretation of the law and has requested negotiations with the county to resolve the matter.
This happens a lot in highly populated areas of the country.  You have a union thug off the job, doing union business and the government agency not only pays their salary and benefits but also pays for their replacement.
Hopefully, this will start a trend throughout the country and other states will pass laws outlawing union thugs from working full time on union business.
