dc.description.abstract Many of the worlds largest multinationals, both American and non-American owned companies are avowedly anti-union. The likes of Walmart, Amazon, McDonalds or Disney do not oppose union representation just for pragmatic or business reasons: they do so because they have an inherent revulsion towards the idea of sharing power through with worker representatives. It is this same ideological distaste of unions why so many smaller firms also go to great lengths to remain union-free. In this short summary review we trace the roots of ideological hostility towards unions, and consider its manifestation in contemporary situations. en
