Unions often standardize and enforce training requirements agreed upon in contract negotiations between their company and the union . This protects workers in high risk situations (like working on hot electrical lines, etc) as well as protecting the company by reducing accident rates and damaged equipment caused by unqualified personnel. Many years ago the electrical union steward even took care of disclipinary actions against union members who the company claimed had screwed up. This system worked well for the company, workers and the union. Repetitions of screw ups were very rare.

I doubt you will be able to accept the challenge.
Conservatives think Obama condemns capitalism, but he does not. It is a lie the right wing propagandists have propogated. You are just so guillible, you believe it with blind faith.
I claimed his views/ideology, not quotes. One example from Obama/Liberals......Obamacare.

Provide us all a copy of binding arbitration or collective bargaining where all you alledged is in the contract. Till then, being a unionized workforce has zero to do with training requirements for a job.

being unionized has everything to do.with safe working conditions and fair pay, as the robber barons who owned the sweatshops were not noted for their humanity.

But, Sweetie, I thought that's what the US Dept of Labor and OSHA were for, to enforce safe working conditions and fair pay.

You are just brainwashed against worker unions by the likes of Braweeehill and the furniture manufacturer's union (association). You have not a clue about how unions really operate and the services they provide to workers and their employers. You probably now believe that Mormon is not a cult just because Twitt opposed raising capital gains taxes. You believe everything the republikan talking heads like Rush Oxycodone Limbaugh tells you.
Remember old Rush railing against drugs and druggies and then he gets busted for drugs?

Rachel Maddow has forgotten more about politics than you will ever know.
