Unions in the United States are under attack by the right wing – an ongoing assault most recently advanced by a Supreme Court ruling instituting the so-called “right to work” across American public-sector unions.

In light of this aggression, the New York Times has published a brief but insightful article explaining how unions improve people’s lives – even those who do not belong to a union – and empower those who would otherwise be powerless.

OPSEU created an award-winning and hard-hitting documentary on the right to work in 2013. With an extreme anti-labour Ford government in power, it is well worth viewing.
