Steve Palazzolo comments on the new labor movement in Crain's Detroit Business

This week’s Crain’s Detroit Business quotes Warner’s Steve Palazzolo in an article titled, “New economy, new labor movement: Declining wages, benefits stir dismantled unions.”   The article discussed how unions are responding to decreasing membership nationwide.

Palazzolo commented on the legal consequences of a lack of unionization.   “When the union rep isn't right down the line, they (workers) don't know who to talk to; and when they feel they're not being heard, where do all good Americans go? The government," Palazzolo said.

The National Labor Relations Board is also becoming more aggressive due to a lack of union representation, Palazzolo said.

"As private union membership continues to drop, they (NLRB) are getting more active in nonunion companies," Palazzolo said. "It's a board that needs to be relevant, and when only a single-digit percentage of workers are unionized, it's becoming harder and they are getting creative."
