By law, union membership is NEVER required. Agency shop requires nonmembers to pay fees to cover the costs of the union's collective bargaining activities. Agency shop fee payers may request a refund of "any part of their agency shop fee which represents the employee's share of expenditures in aid of activities or causes of a political or ideological nature only incidentally related to terms and conditions of employment."
What does "By law" mean to you, Mr. Foreskin?

If a union goes on strike demanding that the company should never hire non-union labor and, if the company concedes to that demand, it is incorporated into a contract - a legally binding contract. Contracts are recognized by the courts.

This recognized and fulfilled demand is then commonly referred to as "Closed Shop", i.e., a workplace closed to non-union labor.

Along comes you to announce that, "by law", union membership is never required. Never required? It damned well IS required if you want to work there! It becomes a stipulated work requiremnt.

Non-union workers are called "scabs" by unionized workers - scabs are what forms over wounds - and if a scab crosses a picket line they are most often brutalized and vandalized badly by union members(thugs).

When was the last time you read of union brutality being brought to justice? Good luck finding an instance.

Jimmy Hoffa and his shadow mafioso, anyone? Broken kneecaps? Cement Shoes? Skimming of union dues?

I understand well the need for labor to organize. Corporations are loaded with jerks in power positions. Problem is, so are unions. Therein lies the rub. The common man/woman is caught between abusive capitalism and Socialist Organized Crime.

RTW tries to level the power balance between two evils so that the individual can still exercise their legal rights without getting screwed or killed by either one. The typical union member has no means of affecting the political power of the either corporation or the corrupt Socialist Union leadership. Unions are all Socialist and corporations are either Conservative or neutrally corrupt playing either side to their benefit. Look at what Google, Microsoft and Hollywood have done. The Socialist/Democratic Party funds a large percentage of the DNC and The Socialist Party of America. Where does the *thinking* worker fit into all of this? They are flotsam on the surface a whitewater river.

RTW is an attempt to assert the *thinking* worker's rights into this sociopolitical mayhem.

Incorrect.
Agency shop and union shop (or closed shop) are two different arrangements.
Furthermore, many construction jobs require union membership before being hired, and the construction unions have closed membership rolls.
Incorrect.

"Under the NLRA, you cannot be required to be a member of a union or pay it any monies as a condition of employment unless the collective bargaining agreement between your employer and your union contains a provision requiring all employees to either join the union or pay union fees.Even if there is such a provision in the agreement, the most that can be required of you is to pay the union fees (generally called an "agency fee.")"

This quote is from National Right To Work Legal Defense Foundation web site, "Defending America's workers from the abuses of compulsory unionism since 1968"

You sound naive as hell. Your hubby may have been in a union but he, along with his clueless wifey, sucked up all they were fed. I, too, belong to a union and have for 35 years. I know what I am talking about. Unions are corrupt, undemocratic and every second word issued by a union is propaganda. Members are kept in the dark. Representation between members and union leadership is never allowed to be direct. They use "delegates" as go-betweens. This insular approach is necessary to the leadership safe from members asking too many and the wrong questions. They have more important things to do:}

When there is a union election, it is the delegates who attend a national convention most often in entertainment meccas like Las Vegas or Atlantic City. Some of the more honest(or simply naive) Delegates have described to me what goes on at those convention hotels after hours. Naked people chasing paid-for prostitutes through hotel hallways, smoking dope, free meals at five star restaurants, free transportation, etc. They are wined and dined by every camp pulling for their candidate.

I think you can easily understand why individual members are not allowed to vote straight for their candidate.

Unions today are corrupt Socialist political machines. Read history. Learn from it so that you don't repeat it. These types of "organizations" throughout Europe, Russia and China have a bloody history of lying to the ignorant, pliable masses, whipping them up into a killing frenzy, and trashing civilization. What the Labor Unions here have become is NOT what they claim to be - the saviors of the Common Man - but money machines duping the members into supporting and evil agenda.

In a perfect world, unions would protect their workers best interest and keep their activities focused there. But they haven't, they don't and they never will because the temptation of nearly unlimited political power is too tempting. RTW is an effort to bring some sanity back into Labor Relations. Nothing is perfect but the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

This is so-o-o-o true of the Boy Messiah's Fiscal Cliff:}

That's a joke, son:>
