I worked for a defense contractor with a strong union presence.

Us IT grunts were NOT ALLOWED to move IT equipment, as there were union guys who did that. IF we did, they would file a grievance and it was a big deal.

Believe it or not, this caused two things to happen:
1) LOTS of people started buying laptops, because then IT was allowed to move them.

2) Some clever managers started bolting carrying handles onto monitors, as anything with a handle on it was considered to be 'portable' and thus was allowed to be moved by the worker bees.
