Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Unionized

Steve Greenhouse from The New York Times reports:

The United Federation of Teachers announced yesterday that New York City’s administrative law judges voted 221 to 7 to join the U.F.T., the city’s main teachers’ union. The judges work for the Taxi and Limousine Commission, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and other city agencies and conduct hearings regarding misconduct and violations of regulations and administrative codes. Several administrative judges said they wanted the union to bargain to give them raises and better benefits.
