Honest question. Do you have stats, within the last 10 years, that prove that Union shops are safer than non union shops?

The reason I ask is that my husband is a safety director at the non union plant that he works at, and he does safety checks (watching employees with a checklist) to determine that the safety precautions are both in place, and being utilized.

One of the most expensive components of any factories budget is Workmans Comp insurance, and claims. In order to minimize those costs the big nasty corporations MUST maintain their safety standards.

My dad was the union president at his plant for years, and they had the same exact W/C claims as my husbands plant does!

So how do you explain this Cintas case?
