Re: tenure

This is a New York union fight, it won't have all the fluffy communal love and hugs of say the N.U.M.

The electricians union is going to step in and demand that anybody who services a computer is theirs and Fruit Stand Workers can't take the back of a machine, then the communications workers are going to demand that only they can do phones.

It's why general union like the Teamsters are so big there - they negotiate with companies and governments to be the only union in a closed shop - in return they are generally very accommodating to the employer.
