Is this the old school unionism that Trotter misses?

A while back Chris Trotter opined that he missed the old school unionism of yester-year. So when I read the article about Indian workers beating their boss to death I wondered if this was what he meant.

Sacked workers beat to death the India head of an Italian industrial gear manufacturing company near New Delhi.

Lalit Kishore Choudhary, 47-year-old chief executive of Graziano Transmissioni India, died after he was beaten up in the company’s office in Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh state.

The confrontation followed a long industrial dispute at the factory, which led to the dismissal of hundreds of employees.

Police said that 63 people had been arrested.

Must be some office if it can hold 63 bashers and one dead bashee.
