Opinion: Public unions should negotiate in the light

Open/observable negotiations is perfectly aligned with the concept, principles, and spirit of Washington’s open government laws as spelled out in the Open Public Meetings Law and Public Records Law. It will end the practice of closed-door deals that lead to union favoritism of certain individuals seeking election to public office. It will help the public understand financial priorities, and, most importantly, it will give the people the right to know and have access to their government.
