I am glad that people in a skilled trade with limited options are forming a union. Granted I'm assuming that they won't be able to strike because they are employees of the state but the disparity in pay for professors is appalling. There are professors in the business departments making 80,000 a year teaching courses like "how to be a creative entrepreneur!" meanwhile, they guy that spent 20 years and discovered quantum gravity that has the potential to change travel and physics (read physics as "life as we know it") is stuck making 40,000 a year.

not to mention unions consistently produce better and more productive workers of high quality.
