Do you think unions have ceased to serve their constituents?
Are the union executive out of touch with the union members?
No, and yes.
Unions have been a useful counterbalance to the power of big business, albeit one apparently now dying--a development I think unhealthy for our society.
On the other hand, as far as I can tell, 'the union executive' have been out of touch with their members' reality more or less forever--at least to some extent.
Just my two cents.
