State laws and unions
Has anyone stopped to think if the merger would go thru you don't automatically belong to the union.
If a worker is in an area where union membership is mandatory then that worker, more than likely, belonged to a union prior to a merger.
On the other hand, if it's a right to work state then union membership is voluntary.
Yes, CWA would get some new members but putting the figure at 20K seems like a stretch to me.
I find it ironic that CWA fights big corporations when they are in fact big business themselves, also because I am a cwa member I get the newsletters, take a look at how many big oil stocks they own, I guess they are hedging their bets
