Quote of the day: "For a worker to refuse to
belong to a union is not to exercise a democratic freedom. It is to
accept benefits that others have worked for without contributing to the
costs. Democracy flourishes only when freedom is accompanied by
responsibility." (Australian Bank Employees Union).
