Now, with Walker's legislation set to become law once it clears legal hurdles, the unions are suddenly coming to their senses.

In Madison, the teachers union has suddenly agreed to a wage freeze and increases in health insurance and pension contributions. The concessions will save the district an estimated $15 million next year, which would almost make up for the expected cuts in state aid.

In Oshkosh, the union has agreed to a wage freeze, increased contributions toward benefits and a change in the employee insurance carrier, which will save the district more than $5 million per year.

In the Slinger district, the union has agreed to commit 5.8 percent of teacher pay to pension costs and increase contributions toward health care costs. The concessions will save the district about $1.3 million per year.

What are the unions gaining by accepting concessions at the last possible minute? Plenty......

I can not believe the following !?!? These benefits are horsepucky for public employees!!!

They are salvaging things like automatic annual salary increases for teachers, a generous number of paid sick and personal days off, reimbursement for unused sick days, salary and benefits for union officials who do not teach, retirement bonuses, overage pay for teachers with a few extra students, and many other items.

Ironically, the loss of collective bargaining privileges would not have been necessary if the unions would have come to their senses months ago and started offering meaningful concessions. They lost most of their privileges by remaining stubborn for too long.

They lost most of their privileges by remaining stubborn for too long.....sounds like a good idea for the “remaining stubborn for too long” politicians in congress!!!!!!!!!!

I have always said I don't care what you do or with whom you do it, but don't demand that I think that it is normal or that it is OK!!!!
