While intereting, I guess either they miss the role of Solnets or I do. It's been my understanding (and I believe its been discussed here) that Solnets are not "designed" (my descrioption) to be union replacements. That a majority of folks in Solnets tend to promote the IWW, for example, when they promote any form of unionism. Perhaps it's a bit more nuanced then this?

the words "solidarity networks" are a link to seasol.net

Syndicalist, Adbusters is obviously stretching the truth, though there is a trend with more small a and insurrectionist types possibly to say SolNets are the "Food Not Bombs" of anarchist workplace organizing. O.o They've sorta become acceptable even with the type of folks who'd usually be anti-workplace organizing.
