I will say 5-10 years ago, unions were the envy of many private sector employees , in fact unions would often keep the jobs while the non-management hard working employees would get laid off and governments would often court the unions including in NY governor pataki who is republican and has little right to go on national TV and try to pose as conservative and attack government.
Many folks including moderately paid private sector used to say "Oh I wish " I had been a public sector employee who is able to retire with benefits after 20 years, imagine if everyone did the same.
