If the News Tribune is still as right-leaning as it was when I lived there (which was very hard right), I'm not sure I would take the word of one of its reporters about how many were there representing the Union side. Kind of like Fox being "fair and balanced." Another aspect might be that those who would have liked to attend on behalf of the unions were at work--yes even on Sunday. Your wealthy tea-partiers would hold positions that enable them to have weekends off to attend these events. Same thing if it was held during the week. Those most likely to support the Union workers would not be able to leave their jobs to attend a rally--their Tea-Party Republican bosses would never allow that.
