Are Unions "Instruments of God's Will"

Yes they are, according to a minister in Indianapolis (and adjunct labor studies professor) named Darren Cushman Wood. Wood has just published a book called "Blue Collar Jesus: How Christianity Supports Workers' Rights" which says that "labor unions are legitimate instruments of God's will for creating a just society". Agree or disagree, it's great to see a book on religion and social issues published in the USA that does not exactly fit in with the thinking in the White House.
