The Unions Versus the Founding Fathers. Armor, John.

Another issue of demonstrable concern to public sector unions, which also affects congressional efforts to set the nation's financial house in order, is the proposed Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In The Unions Versus the Founding Fathers, John C. Armor discusses union leaders' initial opposition to the measure and suggests that by resisting state calls for a Constitutional Convention they essentially remain opposed to it. He repudiates the notion promulgated by some unionists that the convoking of such a convention could engender the dissolution of our system of government.
