Read Max Fraser's piece from The Nation on how the latest UAW negotiations for the top three American auto makers are eroding the union from within.  This provides insight on the challenges of unions within the context of globalization (and "reverse globalization," that is, foreign firms like Toyota and Nissan setting up shop in the U.S. and establishing low wages and undermining unions in areas of the country that have a weak union tradition).
