Big Labor Bosses Getting Nervous?

Big Labor bosses in Wisconsin are getting nervous.  You can sense it from this Associated Press story lamenting that the unions may have bite off more than they can chew by attemtping to recall Gov. Scott Walker.  AP quotes Greg Junemann, boss of the Professional and Technical Engineers union as saying “If we lose, it’s a shot in the mouth.  We can survive it, but we’ll be reeling.”

“After devoting so much effort, energy and funds to the recall, unions have to show positive results or it will be judged to be a sign of a weakened labor movement,” said Gary Chaison, professor of industrial relations at Clark University in Worcester, Mass. “If they can’t win in one of the most liberal states, where can they win?”

Good question.  Now you know the stakes.
