Labor Going Trans-Atlantic?

In a long-overdue move, the United Steel Workers of America are discussing merger with the British union Unite. As corporate capital went multinational some time ago, this would be only a first step toward catching up. But better late than never. You can see a report on this here.

You'll notice that in the interview, it's stated that this won't lead to international strike action, because "that's illegal." These journalists should ask the founders of our present industrial unions whether they accomplished this by following the employers' law.
