The article discusses the importance of collective bargaining, citing the case of the six stars of the U.S. sitcom "Friends," which includes Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. Originally, they were separately contracted to Warner Brothers, each earning different salaries. But in 1996, Kudrow put it to the others to negotiate collectively. This way, she argued, Warner Brothers could not pay them differently, and could not replace one without replacing all.
