Legislator seeks halt to EFFWA nonsense

Adam Wilson notices a bill filed by Rep. Brendan Williams, D-Olympia.
Rep. Brendan Williams has filed a bill, HB 2326, that would prevent disclosure of public “records from any collective bargaining, labor negotiations, or grievance or mediation.”

It appears to be a direct response to the Evergreen Freedom Foundation’s attempt to obtain copies of notes made by Gov. Chris Gregoire’s negotiators during talks with state worker unions last year.
Awesome. Good for Williams.

Of course, if EFFWA would spend even a small fraction of the resources it uses to mess with workers on something productive, legislators wouldn't have to step in and try to put a stop to EFFWA's nonsense.

But since EFFWA seems to exist mainly to throw a monkey wrench into whatever it can, it's good that people like Williams are ready to step in and regulate the mischief.
