"The 1971 book, *The Unions and the Cities* (Brookings Institution) by Harry H. Wellington and Ralph K. Winter addressed initial concerns of whether private sector collective-bargaining rights should be granted to public sector workers. In his introduction, Jeff Keefe writes, "their greatest concern was whether public sector collective bargaining based on the private sector model may result in distortions of democracy that would shift governmental resources disproportionately toward public employee compensation and result in the over employment of economically and politically advantaged and powerful groups of public employees."
