The future of Unions should be steering towards structures where workers, users, own the platform/service Infrastructures and can decide how to ethically govern themselves.

@rmdes here's a theoretical question: would unions still be relevant in a world where all businesses are cooperatively owned and run? If the sets of those working and those owning perfectly overlapped, wouldn't that be the end of the union as we know it?

@Antanicus perhaps..even though I still think that workers might need "representation" in some way to talk with institutions & have their voice included in policy making. but maybe you're right and the whole upgrade would take out the need of unions altogether.
