So how do you explain this Cintas case?
Let's face it, there are sh*tty companies out there. No body is fighting that. But my question to you was, do you have stats available that union shops are safer than non union shops?
The majority of accidents that happen at both union and non union workplaces are due to the employees disregard of the rules. Here is one difference. If my husband, the safety director, finds an employee willfully disregarding the safety regulations during his checking, he will write up that employee. Depending on the severity of the complaint an employee will either receive more training, be reprimanded, or in extreme cases that employee can be fired.
What happens at a union shop? A grievance is filed, and eventually the employee may be slapped on the wrist.
I am not necessarily anti - union, so don't take this the wrong way, but I am definitely anti - union intimidation, and the lack of a secret ballot scares me to death!
