6. Makes sense - the anti-union workers have to get together to petition to hold a meeting.

Just like any other interest group that wants to address the plant workers "officially". Otherwise, they have to try to talk to the workers one on one or leave leaflets in the lunch room like the parents selling girl scout cookies, real estate agents, and the MLM salespeople do. Or risk getting reported for proselytizing or harassment on the job if they push too hard to force their opinion on other workers during working hours because they couldn't get their act together enough to get a chance to be considered a legitimate representative voice when it came to the elections.

Any fool can spout out any type of stream of consciousness drivel whenever they choose. To be considered legitimate or to earn the right to be listened to with respect means you have to have enough of a logical thought process that what you say has evidence of having actual overall relevance or group impact when it deals with the subject at hand.

If the anti-union guys want to be considered a legitimate voice in this situation, they're going to have to organize.
