well... they were dealing with multiple unions... they'd already come to an agreement with the teamsters but couldn't come to an agreement with another large one... sooooo...

Those were not competing unions if I understand the situation correctly. If that were the case, then said situation would never have come to be

It was the BTCGM (bakers) union that wouldn't budge.

I don't know if competing unions would work, I guess it would depend on what you mean by competing though.

What might work is smarter union's, because in this case the bakers union was incredibly stupid. The company was probably going to go under eventually anyway, but they could have at least arranged for it to last a little longer to give employees a shot at finding other work.

so the baker's union umm, rolled over?

but as i asked earlier. im sure the exit strategy was already done and those workers will be able to dip in their union fund and apply for job training or be able to go back to school right? right?

competing unions would soon digress into "gang" type situations. turf, concrete shoes, etc.

They overestimated the business's ability to flour-ish.
