You're quite right. This is why I am a supporter of the Union democracy movement. I am a member of the union democracy movement in my union, the UFCW. The TDU in the Teamsters is an example. We fight the fight for better contracts, more membership participation instead of paid staff, more militant and greater support for strikes, having our unions do more organizing and reducing union leadership salaries to that of the workers they represent. These are the folks that you'll see leading the wildcat strikes of the world.
