You can't have a President of the United States of America climb into the Unions are act as he does and not suffer consequences, whether private or public unions. This President benefitted from Unions at the polling booths. Businesses have suffered over the last 4 years and businesses are the ones that supply jobs for unions, especially large manufacturing businesses. The support of the service employees union may be good but that is not the large unions of the UAW and others that brought prosperity and automobiles in the past.

Unions went beyond their calling and forced companies into providing more than a good wage for their work, they got to entitlements that were better than a lot of workers, even other Unions.
Then the public unions added more pressure on Presidential administrations to give more entitlements, and got them through voting.

This President has not done a great job for workers, union or non-union. Obamacare is holding back businesses from expanding due to uncertainty. They have additional taxes and fees that will be added onto their businesses. We become like Europe or in Saul's and David's time, the people wanted to be like neighboring countries.
