Welcome to "bannering," a new method being deployed by Big Labor bosses
who wish to continue exerting their influence over a marketplace where
employers, customers and workers have turned sharply against using union
Thanks to a recent court ruling, unions can demonstrate against a company whose employees are content to not belong to a union. According to an industry advocate, the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters' attacks on Ritsema Associates are "threatening companies whose employees who are happy to be there."
The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonprofit research and educational institute that advances the principles of free markets and limited government.
