The concept of trade unions is a good idea. There are three types. The first acts as a way to get special commercial advantages and social events for their membership. For example discounts, special offers and group family outings. The second act as negotiators and the voice of their membership to get increases in pay and conditions for their tribe. They are part of the team to increase the wealth of a company. A partnership. The third are an excuse to act as a bunch of political thugs to suck every penny they can from an organisation or tribal authority: sometimes for the principle, sometimes because they want to prove they can. I abhor the third group. At times strikes are necessary as a last resort, but not because of greed or pride.
I direct all major organisations have a union representative as a board attendee to advise senior management (including Human Resource Management) on grass roots staff issues.
With immediate effect I direct the following formula be used when negotiating pay rises-
If things are going well, a cost of living pay rise at slightly more than the real inflation rate should be made plus a productivity or profit sharing bonus, broken down into local, regional and international components.
If things are going badly, no pay rise should be expected until things are going well again, at which point a backdated pay rise as above plus a "patience bonus" should be made by the employer.
I want unions to help me negotiate unpaid time off for any volunteer member who wishes to take part in the global desert reclamation project referred to in section 3.70.
And finally, I want unions to help provide financial assistance to any of their members who when called to do so, actually go on legal strikes as part of the 12-12-12 initiative against greedy, non conforming employers.
