Recent TMI editorial about the right to union representation failed to make the major distinction between public sector unions and private sector unions and how and with whom they negotiate.
It is very simplistic to say that everyone deserves representation in the same way. Private industry and their unions must negotiate in good faith or eventually economics will catch up with them. Look at what is happening to unionized auto companies. When a particular product or service is affected by a strike or an unrealistic settlement in the private sector we are free to go elsewhere.
