Typically the issue is the company doesn’t have to act as a dues collector and perform payroll withholding of union dues.

I wonder if that is what is really going on here?

Don't tell anyone, but.... IT'S ABOUT THE MONEY. IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY.

One thing that is seldom discussed here is the fact that larger companies prefer to deal with the union over the individual. A factory with 1000 employees doesn't want a team of HR people constantly dealing with every individual issue that every employee has when they can negotiate with a single union rep.

The reasons are very much the same as companies using temp services. In the long run its cheaper to pay the temp service $15 an hour for a $7.50 per hour employee that can eliminated at a moment's notice without repercussion.
