Morning Open Thread: Part Of The Union!

Remember when a song about unions was actually played on the radio? It was 1973, and the band was the Strawbs. "Part of the Union" went to No. 2 on the UK charts.

My beloved dad was a union member, and he'd come home and talk about contract negotiations at the dinner table. (Guess that's where my interest in politics began.)

What about you? Any union households out there?
