In "Inside Nassau labor deals" [News, March 23], writer E.J. McMahon of the free-market Empire Center for New York State Policy states, "If these deals go through it's a win for the unions and a loss for taxpayers."

Our county's services are much needed -- we all benefit from them -- and their unions should be strong. I've read too many horror stories about public union busting, for example, in Wisconsin. I would not want that to happen in our beloved Nassau County or New York State.
