8/2 (Tuesday) Pros and cons of unionization (Host: Lewis Lu)

文章 Lewis Lu »

Hi everyone,

In recent months, more and more U.S giant companies, such as Amazon and Apple, are cautious about the wave of unionization. In April 2022, workers at a New York warehouse voted 55% in favor of joining the Amazon Labor Union. Let's dive into this issue more thoroughly!

Session 1: About the union

1. Why does a U.S company dislike to have the union?

2. What are advantages of forming a union for a company?

3. As we all know, most french companies are allowed to form a union, why is so different from the U.S corporate culture?

Session 2: About your opinions

1. Would you support to form the union of a company? Why or why not?

2. If you were the one of the executives of a company, would you support to have the union? Why or why not?

3. How to reach a balance between the benefits of the worker and the management of a company?
