Bankruptcy would be a good place to dissolve the relationship with the union. They are not the cause of all problems, but they do share a large portion of the blame. I have been a member of three unions and none in the last 20 years. Sorry to all who disagree, I have no use for them. Hoffa had his place in time and maybe that time will come again. Right now they are just a parasite in search of a new host. (had to throw that in. My lawyer said that to a judge concerning my ex 20 years ago)
Was your attorney talking about solicitation of new clients or your ex wife? It could go either way.
A couple of years ago [early 2006] I started talking about the pendulum as it related to politics and then the economy. With politics I said that if the right kept up its bashing it was going to start losing. It lost big in 2006. It continued down the same political path and lost 2008.
A bit later, in the fall of 2006 I said that the flight of the pendulum regarding the the economy was going to be severe as it flew back toward recession. Failure to regulate would cause over-regulation.
Now, let's look at unions. All this talk and movement to disrupt and dissolve unions is going to cause a backlash as folks watch their jobs be disrupted and moved offshore while corporate folks get large bonuses "for a job well done". The backlash will be strong as folks reach a tipping point.
A much smarter logic, and one used by most of the rest of the world is to consider the workforce as a partnership, whether they are represented by unions or not and to work with, not against them. It appears only the fringe right in this and a few other countries that seem to have a hard-on against labor unions. I can't tell if it is because you don't understand the benefits you have gained from them or are just blinded by the right wing rhetoric that just assumes that unions are bad.
At some point the kids on the right are going to get tired of dodging all these pendulums that they have, by allowing them to stretch so far in one direction fling back toward and past them at record speed.
