This project was designed to 1) develop counter-arguments to negative comments regarding labor unions; 2) investigate the current opinion of NIU business students regarding labor unions through a written, anonymous survey; and 3) attempt to change some negative opinions of unions through an oral presentation to the Society for Human Resource Management, NIU student chapter. The following paper lists 13 negative comments regarding labor unions and the counter-arguments to those comments. It presents, and was intended to present a one-sided, positive view of labor unions and includes some economic analyses. The opinion survey, results, and corresponding charts are displayed in Appendix A, B, and C.
