Since one of our staff members here resides in Utah........... Great comments at the end of the opinion piece.
I have finished reading Sen. Orrin Hatch's op-ed regarding his "Employee Rights Act" bill, and I am amazed at the misinformation he has been given about unions.

I have been fortunate enough to be the president of the Utah AFL-CIO and have spent my 40-plus years in the building trades.

During my time my union has always represented me, regardless if I was a helper, apprentice or journeyman. The unions gave me the opportunity to train and consistently upgrade my skills so I would be more valuable to myself and my employer.
