Professor and Chair of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan discussed how unions use non-traditional tactics to get companies to the negotiating table.
California Proposition 23 currently has a massive spending gap between the $100 million raised by opponents, led by dialysis corporations, and the $8.9 million by supporters, led by a statewide union of healthcare workers. "They don’t have to invest any of their money to support it, but the other side has to spend tens of millions because it would be a disaster if it were to pass," Logan said. “The whole idea of using non-traditional tactics to achieve greater leverage in unionizing has been around for years."
