Anyone that has ever been in Union/Contractor negotiations knows that they are always compromises. No body wants the work to stop. I know there are some hard core union areas like Chicago, New york that arn't as likely to bend but there also hard core contractor areas like Dallas that are the other way. Most areas of the country do compromise. I've been in New Mexico ( and ya it is in the USA) 18 years and there has never been a strike. Why a contractor, mostly large ones like about Unions is if you score a big job you don't have to go to the paper. The Unions can pull people from all over to the job. All licensed. The unions product is people. And I think your stat is made of bad information.Originally posted by lowtemp
statistically union strikes have closed more plants then recessions. They make all these demands, but are not willing to compromise. Our shop almost went union about 5 years ago but it got voted out. Most ppl at our shop(which is 40+ employees) are dead against unions.
