Limiting what is allowed to be negotiated in a labor contract is weakening the union. So I can understand cutting pay and benefits now with the state budget and economy where it is, but I do have a problem with limiting those rights in the future when the state budget may be great and the economy is doing great.

They should be the same across the board for all the same level employees. So Texas should have the same rules for all state employees and the federal government should have the same rules for all federal employees. The federal government should not mandate that states use the same rules as the federal government when it comes to how it treats its unionized workers.
