Denver Post reports today that choosing Denver as the site for the 2008 Democratic National Convention is being held up by concessions from the stagehands union to forgo its right to strike during the convention. If they won’t pledge not to strike during the convention, then democrats won’t come.
Aren’t the democrats the party of the unions? Don’t they support unions right to strike? I guess that support only goes so far as big business and that protecting the individual is secondary to the success of the media events that are the national party conventions.
