45. It wasn't a mistake....
He was a past union president (of the Screen Actor's Guild), and supported the Polish Solidarity movement, so in that sense, he could be thought of as pro-union, which is part of why PATCO (along with the Teamsters, and Air Line Pilots Association) supported Reagan over Carter... he was thought to be a "union Republican".

....Until, of course, he broke a strike.
