Admittedly earlier union models are of questionable value, particularly where advancement is concerned, there most definitely are issues that will most likely only be addressed by unionization.
The fact that something approaching an 80 hour week has become pretty much standard in the industry is a prime example. Just because our so called superiors all lack a family, a life, or both is no reason for me to give them up too.
We constantly have to contend with users who screw things up allon their own (they "know" how to do it) and then hang it on us.
Although I would not vote to join one myself (at least not at this particular employer, for now), I would have at some past jobs, and I sure would not mind if my employer at least had the possiblity of unionization to consider when making decisions regarding policies.
