Much depends on the meaning of "common good." Does it mean a collective prosperity arising out of the things we allow to occur, like allowing the rich to provide employment for us, or does it mean everyone's getting what he deserves by doing the actual production of at least one thing everyone needs and sharing in the productive work of others by providing them with at least that one thing they need either to be productive or to enjoy being so? Where the unions go wrong is in not working toward the latter version of the common good but in being content with the status quo.
