Unions have a loud voice in communicating with elected officials ? and rightfully so. However, the voice must not be so loud that it resembles a seat right next to the bank of speakers at a rock concert. It must not be so loud that it causes long term hearing damage preventing other balancing voices from being heard.The employees of a public agency need more direct opportunities to demonstrate their loyalty and innovation in a safe, enriching environment free from inequity and poor behavior by colleagues and supervisors. Personal accountability and acceptance of responsibility for behavior and performance on the job would be a wonderful thing to encourage in a society continuing to be weakened by the retreat of these qualities.
