Tired of seeing unions disparaged

Thank you, Kevin Cullen, for your column on the benefits that unions have provided us (“Laboring under a cloud,” Metro, Nov. 5). I am sick and tired of the constant disparagement of unions.

As more and more workplaces opt against unions, workplace conditions have deteriorated, with many employees working longer hours with fewer benefits than before.

I am thankful and proud that for most of my working life I belonged to a union.
