“Taking the labor movement open source”

Cyberlodge, “the first open source labor organization” (i.e. union), is open for membership. “Consider us SourceForge.net for the labor movement,” they say, but can they convince notoriously non-union IT workers to organize? (And does that jargon really mean anything in this context?) WashTech has a five year head start on them, but still hasn’t managed to make many too inroads into tech companies, though they’ve still accomplished quite a bit. This might change, if the current rapid loss of tech jobs to offshore workers becomes the issue that turns techies into union supporters.
