    A "good labor union" serves to represent the workers as a group during negotiations and presents a unified voice of those it represents. A good union a smart union deals from strength of numbers, and a good negotiator would not sit down at the negotiation table without a strike mandate from the rank and file in his back pocket.

    Negotiations is a game of give and take, but a good union negotiator will get more than he will concede. I know this because I was a member of the union negotiations team for Canada Post for several years the second largest union in Canada.

    Nothing in the way they operate now. They operate in a Mafioso way. Unions should not exist unless they redefine their function in the labor landscape today!
