Is The Opposition of Local 7 Members Helping You To Favor Privatization of City Services?

No votes yet the contract up for ratification on the union leadership and our mayor. The contract has been in negotiation for several weeks, and the leadership took what they thought was their best offer (at least that is the way it worked in my union) to the membership. There are always a few loud voices who want more. Others go along with those demands. Others do not want to fight, but are willing to accept what was offered. Taking this to arbitration would probably result in keeping what the unions have (arbitrators are loath to take back what has been negotiated in the past), but many members would still feel as though they had been stuck with a "bad contract".

In a monopoly, one or more persons or companies totally dominates an economic market. Monopolies may exist in a particular industry if a company controls a major natural resource, produces (even at a reasonable price) all of the output of a product or service because of technological superiority (called a natural monopoly), holds a patent on a product or process of production, or is otherwise granted government permission to be the sole producer of a product or service in a given area."

People, under law, have the right to form a union, and have themselves represented under a contract. Just as individuals have a right to contract for employment.
