Calling Alanis Morrisette

Irony can be such a cold-hearted bitch at times...
If you want a good measure of how deeply the collective bargaining bill in Wisconsin has disrupted public sector unions, there is no better example than the Wisconsins Education Association Council (WEAC).

Last month WEAC announced that it was laying off 40% of its staff.  With little over which to collectively bargain, and with dues no longer withheld from paychecks, the need for and sustainability of a union bureaucracy could not be justified.

Now WEAC is being boycotted by National Staff Organization (NSO), a union representing educational union employees.

Isn’t that great, education union employees have their own union?  Is there a union for employees of education union employee unions?
This is beyond awesome.  Could they picket the picket lines of the WEAC if they went on strike?  If you crossed their picket line to picket, would you be considered a scab?  Or can the NSO picket the silly protests WEAC members are conducting across Wisconsin, and thereby prevent the protests?
