Is Walsh Pumping up Supporters or Simply Stating Fact?
Hopefully, Bob Walsh is merely trying to manufacture a self-fulfilling prophecy, here:
“We are preparing, if there is a session in October, to be present and strongly advocating for binding arbitration,” says Walsh, executive director of the National Education Association of Rhode Island. And, “we are fairly comfortable we have the commitments we need to get this passed.”
Legislators shouldn’t underestimate the extent or the staying power of objection should they so clearly prove themselves to be doing the bidding of the unions.
