They still are required to pay union dues as a requirement to work at that job when they do not wish for union membership. That is wrong.

And 85% at the U of M is a very high number to just cover collective bargaining costs.

So, you FINALLY learned something, but still want an opinion about costs, because you're STILL A MORON ??? Sure, you can have a stupid opinion, just like you can call a 4 door Corvair "collectible", please ignore my laughter.... LMAOROTFU~! Hertz to see how dumb you are ~!

if it's so little why make someone who doesn't want to be part of the union pay them?
That was in the early 70's a new dodge challenger only costed 7000 dollars, college was only about 300 dollars a semster for 12 credit hours after about 8 months on the job management made me an offer that I could'nt resist,that was the worst mistake that i have ever made,all of my friends stop speaking to me, like the old saying goes "It's loney at the top." so how true I quit after three years.

The law says…

“…less the cost of benefits financed through the dues and available only to members of the exclusive representative. In no event may the fair share fee exceed 85 percent of the regular membership dues.”

“IN NO EVENT MAY THE FAIR SHARE FEE EXCEED 85 PERCENT OF THE REGULAR MEMBERSHIP DUES.”

And you are claiming they do not charge the full 85% they are allowed to charge?

They can't even be compelled to pay that in a right to work state.
