Trade Union Law

"The trade union shall assist the enterprise or institution in properly dealing with the matter so as to help restore the normal order of production and other work as soon as possible."
And where, you ask, does such a phrase exist in trade union law? (hint) .I am preparing a piece on trade as I attempt to reconcile the rampant destruction of manufacturing jobs in North America with constant reminders of how wonderful it is to have these new trading partners.

How is it so good for us to send raw materials as far across the ocean as possible, and have finished goods returned the same distance? Who really wins in this game besides Steamship owners?

More to come.
