Game Developers Union Gaining Momentum?

What do you guys think about unions for video game workers? Good? Bad? Thanks to Blue's News for the linkage.

Prior to the Game Developers Conference there were perhaps 200 members of Game Workers Unite around the world. Now Kinema, who uses a pseudonym to protect her identity online, said the organization has grown to more than 800 active members with at least 17 chapters in North America alone. That includes chapters in nearly every major geographical hub for game developers on the continent, with cities like Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Montreal, North Carolina, Ottawa, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Vancouver all represented.
