Are unions really needed?
If the world were perfect and all employers were fair, honest and shared fully with workers, maybe not. But even if employers were perfect, workers might still want to organize. Humans organize themselves into groups that make sense to them. Human beings should have the right to participate in decisions that affect their lives. Workers care deeply about their jobs and want a voice in workplace decisions.
We live in an economic society devoted more to bottom-line profit than to people. Most corporate decisions that hurt workers are not driven by a desire to hurt workers, but rather a desire to increase profits or compete in a very competitive global market. Individual workers need an organized voice to challenge the priorities of companies and our economic system.
In our society, unions are the primary vehicle for worker representation in the workplace. Over the years, unions have proved themselves as advocates for justice in the society. Many workers view unions as advocates for justice for the future.
