That’s bad news for any company with a union that also wants an influx of cash to help grow. Here’s how it plays out. “We find that union election victories are associated with increased bankruptcy costs, which lead to declines in bond values,” according to a research report published earlier this month by the National Bureau of Economic Research. “Unions further depress bondholders´ recovery values as they are assigned seats on unsecured creditors´ committees,” the paper continues.
