John Hickenlooper wouldn’t enrage his union friends by reversing Ritter’s unionization order

During Monday's Elevate Colorado debate in Glendale, former Governor Bill Owens pointed out to Obama Democrat John Hickenlooper that the Democratic Party's strongest supporters are union leaders. Therefore, it was no shock that Hickenlooper firmly defended unionization in general and Governor Bill Ritter's executive order that effectively unionized many of the employees of the government of the state. To reverse Ritter's order, he declared, would enrage union members and demoralize state workers (See my clip below.)


Hickenlooper is not concerned that, as Owens pointed out, unionization gives state workers who are protected by civil service another layer of job security. Few taxpayers who work in the private sector have even the first layer of job security offered by civil service or the high pay and benefits that state employes enjoy.
