THE BIPARTISAN APPEAL OF BREAKING THE UNIONS:

Andy's ready for war with unions (BRENDAN SCOTT and FREDRIC U. DICKER, November 24, 2010, NY Post)

Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo laid out plans yesterday for all-out war with the public-employee unions next year, as the current governor proposed ending the costly practice of allowing state workers to idle in empty buildings. [...]

The Office of Children and Family Services has struggled to close juvenile-detention centers even as more residents get diverted to in-home treatment programs and the population plummets.

The call to action by Gov. Paterson came a day after Cuomo blasted as "ridiculous" a union-backed law that requires the state to give 12 months' notice before closing youth-detention facilities.

"It's a very simple graphic demonstration of the dysfunction, of the incompetence, of the lack of connection to what really has to be done in this state," Cuomo told Albany's WGDJ 1300-AM.
