They always did have that power. Walker's changes didn't affect the freedom to decertify a union. The main thing he did change was collective bargaining for benefits, which are no longer provided by the union. So other than collective bargaining for salaries, they aren't worth much. If the salaries are the same, they're a waste of money. Still, the teachers may anticipate the need for future collective bargaining power over wages, which is why I offered the caution I did.
You’ve obviously not been or witnessed the treatment of the few or individual who chooses not to belong. As one who has I can assure you the power is not on their side. Your statement does not fit into the reality of the structure
Have often said: state legislature set up the unions vs administration to create a corporate game of “let you and him fight”.— Let the power struggles begin (but not with us. We’re innocent )
The government then stirs the pot, sells tickets to watch the fight thru media coverage and sits back and swears to their own innocence as they goad each side on! Dis functional family behavior at a corporate level.
Good teachers are too busy teaching to fight it so they pay the due and bitch in their 20 minute lunch break !
Nonsense, Walker’s reforms forced the unions to certify every year. This is the obvious result.
Another win for Walker and freedom and the beginning of the end to the corrupt idea of “public employee unions”.
According to the article your statement is not entirely correct:
"The Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill required public unions to hold an annual recertification vote."
Curious - when was the last time the unions held a re-certification vote?
