    Exclamation Now We Have to Face Down a National Right to Work Push??!

    Now do I sound like an alarmist? Has being dispatched like minutemen to each individual war as they were happening panned out right for our cause at all? Should we have begun from the top in the first place?

    One thing going for us, Rand Paul is a joke.

    Well I am sure the resident right winger will come out of his bunker and tell us all how great his Senator is and all he does to help help the country and unions in particular.

    Well that will definately help those China businesses in the US.

    Of course, the President does have the power to over-turn that Right-To-Work Act, like he did in Michigan.

    Two things to think about
    For the most part these officials are getting elected on these ideas.
    And the union people have decided not to join or pay all on their free will
    What is going on? No one is being forced out of a Union they are simply given the option.
    I know you don't like reading that but there it is.

    Overturn the law in Michigan ???
    It is now a state law, the President cannot ( and did not ) overturn a state law.
    Could you show us how you think he did that.

    Why should anyone have the right to be represented by a union, receive all the union benefits of better pay, better medical benefits and more than likely a pension and yet not join the union or pay dues? Not right IMO!

    It is simply a way to eventually starve the union so there is no money left to function.

    Yes, and it could be over-turned with an executive order from the President. I mean, that would be the right thing to do to protect the union supports who voted for him, correct? I believe he did that for the State of Michigan already, didn't he?

    Spaghetti, I have not heard or read of anything about Obama overturning the law in Michigan.

    This might help explain how some of the RTW laws affect unions, the members and the dues the union collects for administration and the other work involved with a union contract.

    Workers have the right, under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), to refuse to join a union. However, some collective bargaining agreements -- the contracts between the employer and the union -- require a company to employ only union workers to do certain jobs. One major reason unions want these contracts is to share the burden of the union's work. The union is required to represent everyone in the bargaining unit, regardless of their union membership. Requiring everyone who gets the benefit of the contract to be a union member solves the problem of so-called "free riders," who reap the windfall of the union's work but don't pay the price.
    but the worker may have to pay at least some portion of union dues
    A worker who refuses to join a union or pay union dues for religious reasons may be exempt from paying dues or fees. However, these workers can be required to make a similar contribution to a nonlabor, nonreligious charity organization. And the union can require them to pay the reasonable cost of any grievances the union handles on their behalf.

    they still have to pay their fair share of union money spent on representing the bargaining unit's workers -- including the costs of collective bargaining, contract administration, and grievance processing.

    Of course with any board reaching law, as the RTW legislation's, they are complex and may differ from state to state.
    My impression was always that a worker still must pay, his or her, fair share towards the expense of the contract and other related expenses the union incurs on their behalf.
