Ms. Williams said the decision "was not easy nor made lightly," but was reached after "it became clear that a shrill and vitriolic ballot campaign marred by misinformation and disinformation would be impossible to avoid."
Wait a damn minute here. Either this law was a good proposal or it was not. Since when has a "shrill and vitriolic ballot campaign" ever dissuaded a union from moving ahead on any issue. In fact, I believe everything unions touch is surrounded with "shrill and vitriolic". What's makes this so different?
There's more going on here that's not being reported. My guess is that Ted promised something big to these guys.
The good news is at least this one has been put to bed; for now.
