I often wonder what would happen if a construction site opened up openly saying they would not allow union members to work there? The piquet line would be a kilometer long right?
This movement claims to be the pillar of workers rights yet openly bully and harass those workers who exercise their legal right to say no. And in a day and age where the majority of union reps have never worked a day in the industry that claim to represent and are obviously using it as a stepping stone into politics, is the union movement still really needed?
I don't know about other countries, but here, I'm tired of picking up the paper to see another corrupt union rep has stolen union funds from Australias lowest paid workers only to be protected by his/her mates in the Labor party.
Any thoughts people? I'd like to know how it works in other countries.
