  •  Because unions can have non-cost drawbacks. (2+ / 0-)

    While I understand the reasons for unions, and think they are generally good, in practice, at least in the industry I'm involved with, along with unions comes much stricter work rules that get in the way of productivity: Seniority, difficulty in fireing less performing workers, and lack of flexability in work and assigments. I don't know if and how much these things would affect grocery work, and how much they derive from the contract negotiations, but these factors do not motivate me to go out of my way to find union labor when I want to get things done.

    From a libertarian perspective, a union could be seen as a labor monopoly.
