New Jersey Governor Christie Stays Out of Wisconsin Union Battle

Christie wisely avoids an attack on workers’ collective-bargaining rights:

Christie has recently said he supports collective bargaining. And during the gubernatorial campaign in 2009, he issued an “open letter” to unions in which he said rumor-mongering about his intentions to destroy unions and their benefits was untrue.“I will not end collective bargaining and will safeguard protections for ALL public employees, including teachers,” the letter said. “Collective bargaining is an important safeguard for public employees and is a part of a long American tradition of self government. We must make sure that the voice of every worker is represented in contract negotiations.”
