... remember folks, as is a common problem and is starkly evidenced with the Sanders and Clinton union endorsements, while unions can be good, ONLY ones set up where decisions are made by the WORKERS and not the union bosses are good. If forming a new union, MAKE CERTAIN that the way it is set up keeps any bosses from grabbing more power, you must have checks and balances. You must make sure any changes can only be done with full consent of the workers.
