“Unions got you a 40 hr. work week, vacation pay, safe working conditions, anti sexual harassment laws, sick leave, a lunch break, to mention a few things.
If you think that these companies don't want to get rid of all those things and treat you worse then a dog...well, I've got some great swamp land to sell you.
There's a reason Unions were formed- to prevent the abuse of employees. Unions are able to demand better treatment because they stick together to defend workers rights.
Many companies have made record profits over the past few years- none of that money has trickled down to the workers. It has gone into the pockets and parachutes of the CEO's.”

“Yep...my husband just started a job where he manages a shop in which the union is trying to get a foothold. The business was recently sold and the new owners decided to cut back on healthcare contributions. The old owners paid 100% healthcare for employees and their family. Now the employees are still covered but they have to pay for their families..600 a month. A few techs started whining and went to the union..which proceeded to sue the new owner. The owner can't even run his own business...you can't fire anyone..you can't write anyone up because the previous owner never did...You can't hire anyone unless you go through the union..and you can't pay anyone what you want because they decide whats fair..etc..the union hasn't even signed anyone yet but...if all the Techs did sign with them...management could write folks up and fire them etc..it's total extortion....The union is causing a hostile workplace, nobody gets along anymore....This is in an auto dealership! There should be no STINKING unions in an auto dealership!”

“How dare unions get in the way of those nice people the corporations.”
“Mylord what a horrid place to be in ! I cant and don't want to ever understand what that would be like. I wish i had word's .... but i never will and never can i understand why God has to do such
thing's . I guess we must have faith that HE know's there's a reason . And one day it will be
clear to all of us. Until then please pray, I will.”
