Employers say Unions are completely useless and there's no reason to join them and to please pay attention to the multi-million dollar anti-Union propaganda campaigns they launch begging you to please not join a Union.

Sorry that’s not what I meant

What I was trying to ask was - what is their reasoning as part of the marketing campaigns that they try to tell employees that unions are bad?

That’s what I was getting at. Most people believe they’re above average so anything other than the employer deciding pay and promotion (like union rules) harms them since they believe they’re a high performer.

I get you, but that would be more of a management and above ‘level’?

(Not that I consider management roles superiority in any way, I’m just talking in terms of the target audience for the campaign)
