Unions and democracy

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives has just released a report entitled Unions and Democracy. This paper addresses the impact of unionization outside of individual workplaces and thus suggests that recent government attacks on unions will have a negative effect on equality, engagement and participation--foundational aspects of democracy. The broader question this paper raises is whether these attacks on unions are in fact designed to cause these outcomes.
