I am against Unions but if you belong to one you should pay the dues. You should not be REQUIRED to join a Union though. Take that out and pass the law again.
Agreed - what were the legislators thinking? Was this snuck in as a poison pill by the bad guys?
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?
