Trade Unions – a force for evil?

Are Trade Unions in the workplace a force for evil?

Let’s consider some points as to whether they are:

  • They prevent the worker having a direct dialogue with their employer
  • They push for the “lowest common denominator”, in terms of presenting the least able worker as the acceptable standard, and thereby suppress overall workforce quality
  • They present a “closed shop”, where paying a subscription for membership is the only way into an employment (particularly a trade)

Discuss.
