If union workers should get punished for going on strike, what’s the penalty for management not reaching an agreement, too?

Also, what’s the value of getting rid of collective bargaining for public employees if they can still join a union once you privatize everything?  I mean, it’s kind of silly that guards at a private prison can join a union, but the ones at public ones cannot.

I bet they hadn’t thought about how these two agenda items might intersect before…
