Professor John Logan Quoted in News Articles on Union Organizing Published by Reuters and Other Major News Organizations
Department Chair and Professor of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan spoke to several news outlets about the anti-union efforts of large corporations and how their workers still manage to unionize.
Apart from firing workers for union participation, closing stores, and intimidation by managers, some companies hire consultants as part of their anti-union strategy. Logan writes that these consultants are able to prevent union organizing by identifying early signs of organizing activities.
Despite companies' anti-union attempts, there is a wave of successful unionizing. “The unions have won against all odds—we’ve never had them win against these superstar corporations before,” says Logan.
