Sure, you'd see it that way from your POV. As an outsider that had to go into many union plants and work with both management and union members, I'd say the union was frequently the more guilty party. I was hired by the company to do a job, but had to be nicer to union members just so that they wouldn't get in my way. Frequently, I'd brought in because the union members refused to do a job they for which they qualified. Since I knew the game and had made "friends" with the union members, they'd actually do the job for me just to prove to me they knew how.
