Default This can't be good news.

The West Coast Longshoreman and Warehouse workers contract covering 16,000 workers ends on July 1st and per a business news quote it is unlikely that a deal will be reached by then. This is a potential problem that we don't need at this time.

Their salaries are already outrageous and their work rules have really tied up unloading of ships and delaying of merchandise coming from outside the USA.

Sadly, it has been some time since I have heard or seen any good news.

Unfortunately too many businesses or public utilities forgot that they still have to sell their product and give in too outrageous demands.

Good grief WalMart and the Dollar store’s shelves are empty. No useless junk to buy. I just can’t take it anymore.

His space barge will be customs checked at point of origin and fly into the distribution centers to neet the trailers.
No more dock workers.
You say nay?
Prescriptions, packages being delivered by drones. Just the beginning of defeating the docks maginot line.

That doesn't necessarily mean there isn't any. Bad news sells papers, attracts viewers and generates hits. Good news doesn't.

Default Why Unions exist

Last five years of my career I was the sole negotiated for my local. The one thing I leaned was if employers treated workers fairly unions would not exist. It's not only wages on the table, many times it's also the safety of the employees. I went against the 3 major networks, the Broadway League, the Major studios. You never sit across from a CEOs; you sit across from a group of hired guns who have a parameter they are locked to, and they secure their position by how low they can keep the cost. It doesn't matter if they are not offering a living wage, or they work their employees around the clock, they do what is best for themselves. I don't fault them, they have families and mouths to feed, but so do union members.
