Normally, I have been in favor of unions. My dad was in the steelworker’s union, forget what it was called, and it helped us a lot, with striking for better wages, etc. But unions can be evil, as well. Read this: from The New York Times Morning Briefing email.
|Chris Magnus, the police chief in Tucson, Ariz., told the Marshall Project: “If I had my way, officers who lie wouldn’t just be put on a list, they’d be fired, and also not allowed to work in any other jurisdiction as a police officer ever again.” Often, though, police-union contracts prevent firing even officers with a record of brutality and dishonesty — which then casts a shadow over the many police officers who tell the truth.|
Seriously, you can be as brutal as you want, you can lie and lie and lie, and the people who you work for can’t do anything about that? Anything meaningful, like fire you? So your union just gives you a ‘get away free’ card?
I can’t be the only person who sees something wrong here.
