Of course, what that actually looks like is what all the fuss is really about. We want to be fair, but not give away the farm. We want to have our rights, but not when overburden the system.

My guest today is Joe Blades, who you might know from his show on Tuesday nights (Ashes, Paper & Beans), but who is here today to talk about unions. He’s a representative of USGW here on UNB campus, and stood in support of the pre-strike warning action that happened at STU recently. We talked about the need for unions, a bit about the specific STU action, and about how unions work in a rapidly-overturning populace.
