BUSI 342 Unionization can be good or bad. In this situation we see that this unionization was formed due to the fact that they are trying to get back their annual COLA and merit increases. Now, some employees may have been with the company for 15 years so this can be an absolute shock to them. When this problem occurred, we must remember that we should act as God did and bring glory to his name. From a human resources manager position this would be an extremely difficult situation. The reason it would be so difficult is it wasn't self inflicted pain to the company, but rather the economy took a hit which affected this company. Moving forward, the first step I would take would be is giving guidelines to my supervisors. The first guideline I would give them would be to listen to the people first.

The second article I read by Hipp and Givan called "What Do Unions Do? A Cross- National Reexamination of the Relationship between Unionization and Job Satisfaction" described unionization as unhealthy as well. The authors stated that job quality would go down when the employees felt that they were not being treated fairly or paid enough (Hipp & Givan, 2015). 1 John 4:20-21 says, "If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother." This is such an important verse to remember in todays society where there is so much chaos and corruption. But, the amazing thing is that God is in control of our
