It is not at all uncommon for employees who have opted out of union membership to be required to pay a small (relatively) fee to pay for the benefits the union still provides; namely, collective bargaining for wages.

I did that a while back. It was the Beck decision. You pay agency fees to cover collective bargaining work.

And there in lies the problem!

If I do not want to be in the union, but a union exists, BY LAW the company will only negotiate with the union for wages and NOT me personally - even though I am NOT in the union.

Basically, the company gets the benefit of less union members (maybe over time enough to dissolve the union) but until then, individuals are SCREWED unless they are FORCED to pay union dues for services that they don’t want!

Kinda seems like Obamacare in some ways - huh?!?!? Just keep paying, sooner or later, you will enjoy some type of benefit in some manner or way. And for that, the Democrats want us to say, “Thank you?”
