When is Illegal Legal? Unions

When is Illegal Legal?
Unions play a vital role in whistle blowing.
Unions have attorneys and accountants and can review the companies books and also keep an eye on "management", in particular senior management.
This is why corporations are so anti-union.
Without unions as a counterbalance to organized crime, racketeering will thrive in private industry and also in government at all levels.
It is not surprising that SCUS is empowering racketeers and their influence in industry and government.
It is our responsibility to stop racketeering influenced and corrupt organizations and to call it what it is.
SCUS ruling is not legal, it is illegal.
