Statements about Unions
Says the pension and health benefits reform "eliminated collective bargaining for health benefits."
Says Jon Corzine "gave away 14 percent raises over 4 years and he stood on the front steps of the Capitol at a public-sector union rally and said, 'I will fight to get you a great contract.’"
"To get out of the (teachers) union, you pay 85 percent of $731. Then you're out of the union, but you've got to pay it every year, also required by statute. That’s called a representation fee."
"Numerous studies have shown that these so-called right-to-work laws do not generate jobs and economic growth."
"When the union says I want to eliminate tenure, that’s not true."
