Union drives

Re "Right way to organize," Editorial, Aug. 3

I have been a member and steward of a Service Employees International Union local for about 20 years. I agree that the power to unionize should be put in the "hands of the workers." But without some organizational help and funding, it would be next to impossible to overcome the funding, internal advantage and resources of the employer to counter unionization efforts.

Unless there is an equitable alternative to "card check," the employees will always be at an inherent disadvantage.
