  •  Not sure it's so ineffective (0+ / 0-)

    given the huge numbers of workers in continental Europe who benefit from this structure (from ManfromMiddletown's post upthread):

    Country Union % Total Coverage %
    Germany 18 62
    Sweden 70 88
    France 8 98
    Spain 19 70
    Ireland 31 44
    UK 26 29
    I too would be concerned about a "company union" that's a front for management. But given the argument that a lot of unionized workers don't know when to trust the company vs. the union... having a process and venue to understand things better seems like a good idea. And this is popular enough in places we respect for having better labor relations overall than the US.
