How Unions Can Research a Company

It’s imperative that unions know as much as possible about the businesses they are seeking to organize and with which they are bargaining.  Company information is necessary to determine the most effective means of placing economic pressure on a company, both in terms of organizing and bargaining tactics.  A deep understanding of the company, its leaders and its culture is invaluable for a union whether representing individual members, organizing a new bargaining unit or negotiating a contract with a difficult employer.  In short, knowledge is indeed power for unions dealing with their corporate partners and adversaries.
