    I can’t comment on this situaton. I’m pro-union based on the original purpose of unions to protect the right of workers not to be exploited, particularly with regards to safety matters. However, as illustrated by the travails of the US automobile industry, unon needs, especially union management, have to be balanced with the overall business objectives of the company.
