There are folks that are radically pro-union and others that have positive attitudes toward unions. Given the actions of the Wisconsin Governor and Legislature as well as Bills in other states Pro-Union protesters and some very radical people are almost participating in riots.

For those of you who are very pro-union please note I've been on both sides. I've worked in management, during my career, all the time maintaining my Union Dues from when I was a worker. Even though I paid those dues I never got even the right to vote from them all because I was working in Supervision.

The question below is prompted because I have seen many advocate boycotting a Restaurant because it's building was built without Union labor or they don't hire Union workers. For those I have a question

Be as the Bereans ( Acts 17:11 )

I am conflicted about unions. I realize that there used to be a need for them, and I think if they were abolished, things might start sliding backward, and the working people might again be taken advantage of.

On the other hand, I think that unions, just like most everything else, have become just another big business. I mean, I think the workers are now (in some cases) being taken advantage of by the unions.

An example: I once applied for a job at a store that had a union. It paid minimum wage to start, and after ONE YEAR of employment, I would be offered benefits. I went down the street to a non-union competitor, and was offered above minimum wage to start, with benefits kicking in after 90 days.

Now, I know not all unions are like that, and I still think in some professions, unions are still accomplishing a lot for workers.

As I said, I am conflicted about the whole subject.
As I said, I have seen both sides. I have been in a Union and continued, voluntarily, my dues and I also worked in Supervision at a large company. My motivation for posting this question was simple.

I worked with people who were so pro-union that they refused to eat in the Tower restaurant because the tower was built with non-union labor. I don't know for sure about that but the principal carried across to any restaurant that they knew of. If it was built with non-union labor they advocated a boycott against it. If a business chose non-union labor then they believed Union people should choose not to do business there.

As with most freedoms I feel it should be a freedom of choice issue. No one should be coerced into joining a union or have to and if a business is such that a union or union protections are needed then a Union should be allowed to form. Getting back to my point of the question though. These same people that would advocate a boycott of restaurants whose buildings were not built with Union labor ALL, with no exception, lived in homes they had constructed using the most inexpensive labor they could find and with the least cost materials. In other words when cost, their dollars, were involved and it was their money then Union labor was not applicable to them.

If a pro-union person was that adamant about a boycott of a restaurant that was built with non-union labor then to be consistent should they not apply the same measure and standard to their own homes? So I formed the Question to get anyone that felt that strongly about it to have to think about it.

Unions are both bad and good, necessary and not needed any longer. Unions can kill our ability to compete and when infiltrated by the wrong people end up not working for the people or the worker but for the union Bosses. It is certainly not a black and white issue, at least in my mind.
