"Union Busters" and Cranberry Fools

Check out this post on "Stronger Unions" about Derby based Cranberry Foods (Poultry) hiring  USA "Union busters" the Burke Group and the intimidation of workers.

Why on earth are Cranberry Foods hiring union busters

It is an absolute human right to belong to a trade union and for that union to collectively bargain with the employer. 

Frankly, while I accept that I don't exactly know first hand what is going on in Cranberry - any organisation that refuses to recognise trade unions and/or to bargain with them - are in my view just the same as those who discriminate on any other basis such as race, gender or disability.
