Ball point pen on the morning newsprint
New Jersey's Governor Jon Corzine was slow to learn how the union-managment relationship works. He was newly elected when he took the stage at a union rally in the state's capital to proclaim, "We will fight for a fair contract!" ...The states union members must have been confused. Whom will he fight? He was management and they were there rallying against him. Fast forward to the present downturn in the economy combined with New Jersey's balanced budget amendment and Corzine wants to have mandatory furloughs for all state employees. Unfortunately that "fair" contract may come back to haunt him.
