Let the games begin!
Oh, for the moment, I think I'll sit this out.
Except to say, LOL, (see how I'm sitting it out) that unions are good for SOME places, and non-unions status is good for SOME places. It depends on the local administration, AND on the local union itself.
BALA points out that there can be distinct advantages to unionization for non-skilled laborers. But, you won't find that salary difference in nursing. To an extent, we are 'fungible': the fixed price on us is dependent upon the general demand for our fixed supply, and not a specific employer's demand. Simply put, there just aren't 30 million others just like us waiting to take our jobs.
And that itself is power, whether we choose to individually OR collectively use it to our advantages.
Now, back to the sidelines. . .
