San Diego says ‘no’ to unions

June 5, 2012

Katy Grimes: Early ballots are showing that San Diego’s Proposition A, which would stop the city from requiring Project Labor Agreements on municipal construction contracts, is leading with 59.8 percent of the vote.

In another big anti-union vote, Proposition B, which would cut off city pensions to close the city’s  new employees, was leading by 69.2 percent of voters.

San Diego is suffering under heavy public employee pension debt, and voters appear to have had enough.

More to come…

    Wonderful news. A & B both leading by considerable margins!

    The beast has awoken. He realizes that he’s been screwed and now it’s time to fight back.

    Long live the beast in all of us! 😀

    It looks as if San Jose will also pass pension reform measure

    This is the begining of the end for the RAGWUS, but then we have no other choice. Our next major task is to dismantle government worker unions! 🙂

    Prop a won 2-1, just like I said it would, and the Jerry Clown sales tax will suffer the same fate. Take out the public employee votes-about 15%, and it is a 3 or 4 to 1 margin.

    Even a blind squirrel occasionally finds an acorn, Rex.

    It passed by that margin because there was no organized opposition after it made the ballot. The public employee groups have been saving their money for the litigation to come, where they have a much higher probability of success.
