The Union form of Compromise

I'm sure many of you have seen a similar logo on T-shirts, posters, etc. It conveys the message of solidarity. Not solidarity where people should stand together for their beleifs, but solidarity in the sense that unions and taxpayers, employers and the like are adversaries. This has been the mindset ever since unions came into being. Yet we teachers are expected to convey the exact opposite message to our students. How do those who promote the message behind logo justify that paradox in their minds?
