* In the Flemish comic ''ComicBook/SuskeEnWiske'', at one point a dragon which is a servant of the Devil himself refuses to attack the heroes, claiming he is going on strike for better working conditions.

* In Season 4 of ''Series/{{Gotham}}'', Penguin effectively unionizes all crime in Gotham by making it mandatory for all would-be criminals in the city to get a license from him, pay him a percentage of their profits, and avoid killing people. Those who don't follow these rules get punished by Penguin's {{Mooks}}. As this causes a massive downturn in violent crime, City Hall and the GCPD turn a blind eye.

* Used for a quick gag in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight''. A bit of EnemyChatter between two street thugs has one of them talking about Riddler firing his goons...without paying their severance.

** The same volume also mentions a Guild of Engravers, who are less than enthusiastic about the mechanical typesetting technology that William De Worde's dwarven acquaintances are introducing to the city, and are set up as the primary antagonists... Until a seemingly rather eventful Emergency General Meeting ends with the election of several new officers and a name change to the Guild of Engravers ''and Printers'', and the ''real'' BigBad of the novel turns out to be someone else entirely.
