State union cozying up to GOP

REPUBLICANS ARE MAKING political hay out of the bitter contract talks between Gov. John Lynch and the State Employees Association.

SEA is talking with a variety of GOP leaders, including Republican Party Chairman John H. Sununu, about working more closely together in the future on legislation SEA advocates.

It is also in talks with the conservative Josiah Bartlett Center on a study that would buttress its arguments that the state wastes too much money on private contractors. The SEA has long argued that there are big savings to be had there. SEA leaders haven’t gotten too far with the argument in the Legislature, and now face a choice of layoffs or furloughs over the next two years.

    Considering how the Portsmouth Shipyard union backed Shaheen after Senator Sununu saved their jobs, I wouldn’t trust a union as far as I could throw them.

    Cute: I hope Sununu tells them to take a hike. (Not likely given there’s political advantage to be had, but a person can hope.)
