"Frankly, I don't think the question is unions.
The question is: Do you have the flexibility to operate and be competitive?
If a union helps you be flexible, then the union is an asset. If the union forbids or handicaps this flexibility to operate, then you have a problem. We have unions in France and Japan. If you can reach an agreement by which unions help you be flexible and [respond] to the market, in a certain way they become an asset."
