I've been involved in a few unions my self. I woudl have to STRONGLY agree with this.
Out of the 3 or 4 unions I've been part of or around, I would say that not one of them encouraged the workers to work harder. Just work hard enough to meet union standards.
If all employers were forced to go union you would also see a reduced amount of small business startups. Not to mention a drop in longevity from new hires.
