With all the government laws now protecting the average worker, I think paying someone union dues to cause a stink and little else is not a good trade.
Be smart. Represent yourself, because once a union gets in, it takes an act of God to get them out! That means as long as you work for that place a certain percentage of your income every payday will go to them.

actually unions have done more damage to themselves and American industry.
Damands, always demand and threats of strikes.
unions have actually shut industries down rather than take a reduction in pay or work force.
Remember the steel industry?? Unions would not give concessions to allow new improved mfg processes which would have needed fewer steel workers but produced better steel at lower cost to compete with steel produced in Asia.
so it is with twinkies, and many other products that used to made by American workers in America.
The Post office railroads, the list goes on and on of companies ruined by unions .
Unions have ruined many companies and sent those jobs overseas to non union companies so they could compete in the world market place.
Everything works better more efficient with non union BS workers working to rule.
