Neal Pierce says that the Obama Administration's policy of barring its officials from crossing union picket lines is a dangerous precedent. Mayors he spoke with were very disappointed.
"'We're shocked,' said Thomas Cochran, Executive Director of the mayors association: 'Every time you go to one of these meetings, somebody is out in front protesting about this or that We had high hopes for this administration. In a way, the White House has taken sides with the union against the mayors.'"
"The administration has clearly offended the mayors, among its top allies and potential collaborators."
