Public-Sector Unions and the Founders’ Political Science

 Four themes in the Founders’ thought are in tension with the introduction of unions and collective bargaining into American government. One is the importance of the consent of the governed, which is undermined when government outsources some portion of control over its workforce to unelected union leaders over whom the public has little control and whose priorities at times are at odds with the public good. Another is the need to control factions in an extended republic, which is made considerably more difficult when one of those factions emerges from the government itself. A third is the principle of limited government, which can be overrun when public employee unions push for ever-larger government at the local, state, and federal levels. And last, there is the importance of effective administration, which can be undercut by burdensome work rules unions negotiate in collective bargaining.
