Labor unions main role is keeping in check the general welfare of workers in an organization or the entire geographical region depending on their jurisdictions. Throughout the years, unions have greatly influenced the economic and political structure of states; however note that the relationship between the labor unions and politics is somewhat mutual and not exclusively symbiotic, in this context it’s the public labor unions that hold the bearing.
Labor unions are grouped into public and private, the difference mainly comes in the structures and management which in long run influences the bargaining power of the group. Public labor unions usually have large numbers of employees in the compared to private unions thus the management is mostly segmented. Large boards of supervisors are usually elected to man the large lot. This brings in disparities when addressing their problems as they lack one voice. Public unions have a myriad of cries, from salary increment, promotions, better working conditions and staff hire. Due to the complexity of their cries federal laws were formed to curtail them to into only non-economic and non-staff issues thus public unions cannot be legislators to the laws that govern them. Private unions however enjoy the privilege of policy making as they mostly advocate for only favorable economic policies and less stringent political environments. In critical analysis we see that members of public unions thrive in their numbers and hence their woes are addressed much faster than their public union counterparts.
The general public is usually sympathetic to public unions over private ones as service delivery of public employees touch their lives both directly and indirectly. Crucial services like education, security, sewerage and electricity supply can be brought to its knees by a single strike of the whole public labor union. This is part of the reason why community leaders form part of the negotiation team during public labor unions meetings.
