If when asked to provide legal support for their position, advocates of
.union would actually do so, then this list would actually move forward,
not in circles. Unions advertise and seek support for dues-paying members-
that is commercial activity. For a company which contracts with multiple
unions, and for which there is comeptition to be a "recognized" union, then
ownership of or appearance on a website called generalmotors.union suggests
some type of conenction, endorsement or sponsorship by General Motors (all
other things being equal).
Please cite the caselaw that sets out the law of how a union may utilize
the name of an employer and explain how .union will abide by that law.
