Wouldnt it be for economic purposes though? If a company can state that the union is hurting the companys ability to remain economically viable, wouldn’t there be some sort of recourse?
It still baffles me how in this day and age that unions hold this much power. Its like using an old out-dated law and applying it in a time where its not relevant anymore.
