That's why they did the service fee thing. One of my ex-coworkers quit the union because they supported pro choice candidates. When she was disciplined for some seriously bad things, she was still represented by the union because she paid that fee. The reason she "was allowed to resign" had nothing to do with her union membership and everything to do with fraud.
My union does not represent any side in arguments between one member and another. Management are not members of my union, from my first-line supervisor all the way up. Some of them have their own union (I think), but it is small and not the same as mine (UAW-again, I don't think we should be allowed to have the UAW represent us, because they give money to political campaigns).

I don't know about your union, but most floor-level UAW stewards are on the Company payroll, not the Union's. That means, that their job, as paid by the Company is to represent the company's employees to Management. And I would say regardless of union affiliation.
Given the above, I typically equate Big Labor's mewling and bitching about right to work with the (very similar) bitching and moaning I used to get from the Steward, whose idiot skilled tradesman I just gave five days off for getting caught sleeping...
Just like white noise.

Today the Unions acted like an Occupy rally in Lansing. A pack of wild apes. Many RTW supporters were assaulted. They tore a tent of RTW supporters down trapping multiple people in wheelchairs. Several Detroit school districts were shut down today so the teachers could go to this. Detroit has an 8% literacy rate among middle schoolers, the teachers have nothing to bitch about.
Like I said, I think the Michigan public will see this for what it is, and I don't think it will hurt Snyder that much in the long run.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

There's some video of the unions on the attack acting like the animals they are. I went to CNN to watch it. Wasn't there of course but they did have a link to a video of the top songs of the year. Remember when they were about news?
26,000 kids didn't have school today because the teachers called out sick to go to this. Any teacher that called out sick and was spotted at the rally should be fired immediately. Oh, wait, that's what happens if I behave that way. Nevermind.Be Not Afraid.

Speaking as someone who has been in a couple of major unions(Teamsters/PBA) and who has held a minor position of leadership in a union, IMO unions are nothing more than an arm of the Democratic Party. Also, these mindless drones out picketing and such have no idea that unions and their leadership don't give 2 craps about them. The union I'm in now is run by most useless bunch of idiots I've ever had the displeasure of knowing. They do some good. They provide the employees an advocate against unfair treatment or unsafe working conditions. But for the most part, unions will destroy a company just to who how strong they think they are. I finally got fed up with the ineptitude of my union and, with several other fellow employees, and vented my displeasure on how crappy the union is and am now going to try to organize ourselves into our own unit free from any brand name union.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

The government does that these days. Unions only provide huge sums of money to left wing politicians who provide huge contracts to unions who provide huge sums of money to left wing politicians who provide huge contracts to unions who provide huge sums of money to left wing politicians who provide huge contracts to unions who provide huge sums of money to left wing politicians who provide huge contracts to unions who provide huge sums of money to left wing politicians....................................... .....
BTW, I read where Thug Hoffa has threatened a 'civil war'. I wonder who they're going to get to manage it?
