First off, all facilities are in right-to-work states (of course).
Unions are allowed, just strongly discouraged. They sent me to a session with the slimiest lawyer you've ever seen in order to learn how to legally derail talk (I had no reports, not applicable to me).
Anyhoo, this one granite-head was over the truck drivers. They had long been content, but he was such an a$$hole that they actually got a union up for a vote. It was only massive concessions from the top that defeated it.
Granite-head was removed. Guess what? He was PROMOTED. Still there, just no longer in a position to be a jerk to hourlies. Now, he's just a jerk to salarieds.
I was mad when they laid me off, but now I'm ***SO*** glad to be away from that cesspool.
