    It's just semantics.  Of course you can't fire the union.  If the union won't agree to new work rules at least in NY you have to operate by the old rules- that means no new raises until there is agreement.  Teachers can't strike, that's illegal. A stand-off. The upshot is that if the parties can't compromise the situation in Rhode Island could repeat itself.  Good faith bargaining is more than just a slogan.  The union in this situation has to grapple with the dilemna that the District is in not simply ask for money.  We don't know exactly what was said in the Rhode Island situation.
