Another of these unions with zero history, zero reputation, and zero credibility. No established benefits program and basically nothing to offer other than trying to cause trouble. Founded by an employee. I wonder who is funding it.

Can't wait to see how these fly by night unions play out 1-2 years from now. Probably the same way many fly by night non profit organizations play out.

Perhaps, but better than Home Depot's HR department supposedly speaking on behalf of their own employees regarding their "issues".

I am not so sure of this even. Maybe but maybe not. These new unions with no history, unknown funding status, no lawyers of their own on union payroll who are trained to handle HR related issues...

A union with no structure, no experience, and no history is a total and complete unknown. And I'm not singling out this one here, this comment is in general.
