There’s recently had been a big debate whether unions are needed anymore especially when it applies to state employee organizations trying to create higher wages, better health care benefits and other perks such as secure retirements. In public companies this often invites conflict among union and non union employees, since non union employees generally don’t get the same benefits.
Though better benefits for employees is generally a good thing, it is questionable how the public would respond to higher taxes especially when government employees make more than the private sector. For more than 75 years, unions were a great help in advocating for better benefits.
Salaries, health insurance, and retirement, are usually the tools that are used as tools when trying to leverage lean budgets when government, or public sector companies are trying to cut back.
Since the 21st century approach state employees have been trying to seizie the opportunity to create partnerships with political parties to building strength when bargaining for improvements. These tactics help state employees negotiate directly with the government or state for better benefits
