Judicial dissent is rare in these collegium days. The master of the roster, the Chief Justice, enjoys the privilege to constitute the Bench and majority and minority views, are often decided at the time of selection of judges for the bench constitution.

Even though there was no prejudice to the union, the Board gave the union another bite at the apple despite the employees’ resounding rejection of union representation; effectively denying the employees their voice and imposing even more burdens on the employer.
