    Management has to be totally unreasonable before the union will even consider a strike. Strikes are costly to both the employees and their unions.

    Nonsense. The screwing is done by the unions to the employees. They killed the auto industry and constantly price their people out of the market. Employers look for options like overseas manufacturing or automation. Are the grocery store employs unionized where you live? Notice the automated check out?

    What about the teachers? Or fireman?

    And a machine can't stock shelves yet for one, two in the store i work at (or whole foods or trader joes) they don't have automated checkout. And this is another symptom of a deregulated system. Plus theirs still cashiers at a store with automated checkout.

    And really the screwing is done by the employer to the employee. The unions are another symptom of a sick system.

    Either party can be unreasonable, but that doesn't somehow make blackmail justified.

    There are less checkers. I don't think it was coincidence that these automated check out machines started showing up after a long strike here in so cal.

    Teachers are a different story. Their union should be outlawed as should all public unions. They corrupt government.

    OK that's insane. They need them more than anyone!!

    If you cons allowed us to regulate the workplace properly then maybe we wouldn't need unions.

    The way it stands now its insane to say otherwise.

    Yes, either party can be unreasonable.

    If one party has all of the aces, then one can be assured that will be the unreasonable party.

    Sorry, but no. Workers have a tendency to get ideas in their heads that they are owed certain things from their employers that are either outlandish or financially not viable for the business.
