When governments fear people, there is liberty, when people fear governments, there's Tyranny
Maybe because this guy is right. Unions know what a companies profits and assets are. If a company is a small start up company the union does not say ok we want 100 bucks an hour with 364 paid vacation days. This is where the rank and file feel that a union may not be looking out for their best interests because a new contract may actually be very low in wages and weak in benefits. Lots of members do not want those jobs but would rather work the stronger contracts with better benefits and pay with well established companies.
The unions and the companies sit down and discuss the future of both on a regular basis. Many of the training funds etc that the companies pay into the companies also have a say in how that training money is spent. In my union the union can not just select a training school at will. There is a committee that has a company representative as part of its membership.
Our pension, health and welfare all have company representatives on the various committees.
If a company actually has the cash to relocate overseas it is not poor and going broke. It has investment capital. Most modern day union leadership is college educated in labor relations and business management. These days the unions themselves have to operate as a business.

Extorting corrupt unions? My my you are not the realist you seem to think you are. How much do you pay for North Face Jackets? Nike? Rebook? I get em for 20 bucks a pair. We buy them from vendors that come to the ship so we are probably being ripped off by Chinese standards. NF gortex for 30 bucks. What do you pay? I get them in China. Where they sent all the textile jobs. Are they passing any of the savings on to you the American consumer? They do not have the big taxes, They do not have to pay decent wages with benifiets, No EPA or OSHA. They ship in bulk 40 foot conatiners at a about 2,400 US per container. Are they passing the savings on to the American consumer???

Besides, you make the invalid assumption that correlation implies causality.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
