“And the sky is falling for certain people who want to keep our society ruled by white supremacy.”
It’s bad enough that the Loudoun County Public Schools asserts that ALL white students and their parents are white supremacists, now we have truly one of the biggest morons on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors calling Loudoun County’s white citizens white supremacists. When does this crap end? We do NOT need this type of racist filth running our county.
Phyllis Randall condemned Briskman BUT let us not forget that just a few days ago it was PHYLLIS fueling the racial flames on Twitter.
- Briskman needs to be removed from LCBS
- Michelle Thomas Needs to be removed from LCPS
- NAACP needs to be COMPLETELY removed from LCPS
- Buta Biberaj needs to be removed for supporting Chardonnay Antifa going after our kids, and dereliction of duties
- The entire LCPS school board needs to be removed
- Ziegler must go for obvious reasons
- Equity Committee is a complete waste of $3m, and should be disolved
Supporters of collective bargaining rights tend to argue it will lead to higher salaries and better benefits for workers. Opponents, however, argue it creates a monopolization of representation and drives up costs for taxpayers.
Discussion over the motion got heated when Supervisor Juli Briskman accused collective bargaining opponents of white supremacy.
“The reason the sky is falling for some people in Loudoun County right now is because this is going to potentially give the little people power,” Briskman said. “This is potentially going to give women power. This is potentially going to give women more pay. This is potentially going to give minorities more pay. And the sky is falling for certain people who want to keep our society ruled by white supremacy.”
Even some supporters of collective bargaining rights on the board thought Briskman’s characterization was out of line.
Board Chair Phyllis Randall, who is black, said the issue has “nothing to do with white supremacy.” She accused Briskman, who is white, of demonstrating the “epitome of white privilege” by not knowing “what white supremacy actually is.”
“Little people will have a chance to say what they want to say, but that’s all little people: little brown people, little black people, little white people, whoever wants to talk,” Randall said. “If you make everything about race, then nothing is about race.”
The vote received pushback from the National Right to Work Committee. The group’s vice president, John Kalb, said it would deprive workers of their rights.
“Union bosses and their handpicked politicians on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors are seeking to deprive county workers of their right to pick their own representation in the workplace, and instead plan to give union bosses the power to force those employees under monopoly bargaining power regardless of whether county workers approve of the union,” Kalb said. “Additionally, monopoly bargaining will further disenfranchise the taxpayers whose dollars ultimately pay for public services and instead give much of that power to unelected union officials.”
The board will hold a public hearing regarding the draft ordinance Oct. 13.
Localities have started to introduce collective bargaining policies after a state law passed, which granted local control over such policies. Previously, collective bargaining was prohibited for public employees.
