There is a company in Iowa where the workers have been on strike over 3 years, the company replaced the entire workforce (with fewer people) and the company has the best cost position, on stream time and highest quality in the companies history. The employees wages and benefits are comperable to what the union workers were being paid.
Union workers are scratching their head wondering, where is my union support now?
You're kind of all over the place here, but seemingly the company could NOT have easily locked the union out because, well, they didn't. Instead they chose death.
