    Unions' Strange War on Options The Intelligencer
    For months the AFL-CIO has been agitating for publicly held companies to get rid of stock options as a component of employee compensation, claiming that options themselves act as a 'powerful incentive for executives to manipulate earnings and engage in accounting fraud.'

    Instead, the enormous labor union - today, it should be noted in this context, dominated by government employees - suggests grants of 'restricted stock,' which is given at current prices but typically not vested for several years.

    It never has been clear why such a switch would be good for rank-and-file workers. A new survey by Mellon Financial Corp. shows that restricting the use of options probably would harm the rank-and-file.
