Sample Book Insights:
#1 A union is a collective effort by all employees who work for an employer to stop the boss from doing what they don’t want him to do. They make the boss do what they want him to do.
#2 There are many different substructures within unions, such as locals, regional, and statewide councils, and national councils. These all elect rank-and-file workers to hold official positions.
#3 Unions are conduits for worker demands and fairness in the workplace. They are structured and function in much the same way as democratic governmental bodies, and though they might have complicated structures, they are often aligned across specific sectors of the economy.
