"By privatizing operations and maintenance, you are guaranteeing that those new workers will be paid much less, with fewer benefits."

"So when you advocate for privatized operations and maintenance you are advocating to kill good, well-paid jobs, done by dedicated Hamiltonians. And you're advocating to pay the new workers less and the shareholders of a private corporation more."

These two statements are simply not true in a modern context. I always wonder why unions insist on perpetuating such a simplistic us-versus-them mentality because it really undermines their overall credibility on more important issues.
