Discuss the following statement: “If management gets a union, it deserves one.”


I think this statement has to do with the responsibilities and roles of management to their employees. Unions are normally formed to protect workers compensation, wages, and even things like holiday and sick pay. Now, if a company truly makes its employees feel valued; there is a good chance that there is no need of a union, because the management team is properly rewarding and protecting their employees! I do think there are exceptions to the rules, and that some good management teams still work with unions, and I imagine that there are some that actually prefer working with unions, rather than having employees go on strike! In short though, yes I believe if a Management team gets a union, it’s because they were not doing their jobs properly as far as protecting their employees, the backbone of the company.
