Union agreements that allow state employees with more seniority to "bump" less-experienced colleagues when the state lays off workers could result in a less skilled, less productive work force, business and workplace leaders warned this week.Okay, so a worker who's been employed longer than someone who just started say, a couple of years ago, is less productive?
That would be yes, according to Danny Homan, president of Council 61 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSME).
"We're not going to have this debate on whether or not somebody who has worked for a year gets to stay over somebody who has devoted 30 years of their life because they work harder," Homan said. "That is baloney."So Homan admits that someone 30 years within an organization can't do a productive job over a newbie?
In Homan's world a good, hard-working, productive employee gets the boot.
