I disagree. The pros and cons of a Technical Writer's Union are a
reasonable topic of discussion for those of us who work as technical
writers. By their nature union issues are political issues. People join
various organizations to increase their effectiveness in the on-going
political debate. Some choose unions, others choose the chamber of
commerce. Their goals are the same: persuade elected officials to make
decisions favorable to "the cause".
