yeah that article only mentions in passing that part of the union busting message was a threat from management that unionizing "could result in a reduction of benefits" which I read as "if you vote yes we're going to take away your healthcare and lay people off"

Walter.
I know you know how to do this.
Get up.




every company says poo poo like that

it would require the union agreeing to that in a contract

it would never happen

in an absolute worst case, Amazon could demand to the end through any job actions, etc. that they would no longer provide anything beyond the minimum health insurance required by law, and the u ion would never agree to it and there would never be a contract, but status quo rules would prevent them from actually changing anything

even with a union in place, Amazon still has to hire and retain workers, and that healthcare is a big way they do it

the public relations fallout would be massive as well

they would never get of it. itís posturing and pure power politics

good!
the nurses near where i live are on a long loving strike, more than two months now. i fundraised heavily for their strike fund when it started but then work got crazy and i frankly forgot and assumed the strike ended. they're back negotiating again but it doesn't sound like the hospital administrators are close to pulling their heads out of their asses
