Gov. Walker (R-WI) now says, deep six the union or I start laying people off next week.

The key point is that the unions in questions have already agreed to all the benefit cuts Walker has requested in his budget repair bill. So it’s only about collective bargaining. If the unions don’t agree to terminate their existence, he’ll start laying people off. Not even clear it’s the same people. But he’ll give them pink slips to force an end to collective bargaining.
