"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.")"

My god just how stupid are you?

From your own post:

"...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."

If you keep thinking with your butt you'll continue being treated like an azz.

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:>
Erm, why do you stay with the union, if you hate your union so much? Go back to school, learn another trade, take on another skill.

It's that whole 'personal responsibility' thing.

Geez, I'm really getting tired of 'splainin' this to ya, Lucy.

I once worked in a union shop where the company and the union leaders slept together. Horrible working conditions and low pay.

Let's put aside the Constitutional Rights issue for a moment and examine a realistic hypothetical. Assume for the moment that unions become so politically strong and so prevalent that, along with the Boy Messiah's rights-trampling, 99% of all businesses become Closed Shop. Most of those union dues are now going to support the Boy Messiah in one way or another.

What does your "choice" now mean? It means nothing. It makes a distinction with no difference. This is "Spitting on the sidewalk is illegal" type of naivete.

But now back to my rights. If I want to work without union political interference, I can't. Being forced to belong to a union as a hiring stipulation, I am also being forced to support a Socialist Political Party. This is unconstitutional. It is against an individual's rights found in the Bill of Rights regarding the rights of association.

I don't want to be a Catholic. I don't want to belong to the Masons. I don't want to be forced by my boss to join Facebook. I don't want to be a Socialist Party member. I don't want to support the Boy Messiah through my forced membership in the NEA.

Just as an aside here, I was listening to NPR in the car yesterday and they were interviewing someone who did a biography of Joseph P. Kennedy - the patriarch of an American chain of evil - and I found it very interesting, indeed. As relates to your post, Joey baby had an incestuous relationship with liberal media. This is back in the 1930's! For example, he had a NY Times reporter writing speeches for him - Joe Kennedy - in secret. And then , afterward, that same reporter would write glowing columns about how brilliant a speaker Joe was!! Joe paid this guy under the table.
Lots more. Kennedy was so crooked, you could screw him into a dung pile without touching a fly. But, even this biographer was reluctant to go to far with Joe Baby's darkness. He didn't even mention Joe's buying off politicians, cops, lawyers, judges...whew!.... involved in his illegal businesses including rum-running. THIS is where the Kennedy legacy had its roots.
Anyways, back to my point: Liberal media has been unabashedly corrupt and sleeping with the enemy as far back as the 1930's at least. But I strongly suspect that it goes much further back. What we are witnessing today is Liberal Media cheating with newer, higher tech tools but the bottom line remains the same: manipulating the ignorant, unwashed masses(read: the entitlement crowd, the takers)
A poor hot dog vender who was just on Greta a few minutes ago said he was hired to come in and sell hot dogs and happened to be near the violent mob tearing down the tent. He's a black man and said the violent mob turned on him, called him an Uncle Tom, threw racial slurs at him, called him the "n" word and destroyed his hot dog stand.

The crowd was yelling this isn't peace time, this isn't Martin Luther King time, we aren't going to go for this peace stuff, we're going to do it our way, etc., etc., etc.

Unions are what Obama lives and breathes for.

In 2008, the Big Daddy to the Big O was the SEIU.

FEC-required filings show SEIU's two PACs spent over $9 million dollars supporting Obama.

"I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU."

He loves his unions.

Even letterman thinks he's a lying sack of sht.
" DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST: Here's what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit,“Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt,” and last night he brings it up again.“Oh, no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt.” And Mitt said,“No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.”
Now, I don't care whether you're Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying. And so what we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.
RACHEL MADDOW: Because the "Let Detroit go bankrupt" headline you feel like was inappropriate?
LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he's the president of course he's right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that."
That's just hilarious. Letterman "discouraged" because Obama was wrong and was "taking liberties" lying his tail off about Romney.

Hilarious.

This whole fiasco called the Obama administration is gonna come full circle sooner than we think.

In the words of Hillary Clinton who knows first-hand the depths of deceit by this president..."Shame on you, Barack Obama! Shame on you!"

You were warned right off the bat that if you didn't join the union and ever needed legal protection for any reason, you'd be on your own.

Because common sense took a vacation in the school system a long time ago and school administrators stopped growing a spine...and unions took their place.

Michigan Police Scratch Their Heads At Fox Contributor’s Post-Punch Media Tour

If Fox News contributor Steven Crowder wants justice after being assaulted during right-to-work protests in Michigan this week, he sure has a weird way of showing it. That’s the word from Michigan State Police, who are ready to investigate and prosecute the man who punched Crowder multiple times on camera Tuesday — if only Crowder would let them.

The video of Crowder taking those punches has gone viral, even as Crowder’s story about the circumstances has started to unravel. Regardless of exactly what happened leading up top the punches, however, there’s a potential crime caught on film and according to Michigan State Police, Crowder has so far shown no interest in having it investigated.

“There is video footage of him being assaulted. We don’t know who the suspect is, but we could do a several month investigation and find the suspect,” Inspector Gene Adamczyk, spokesperson for the state police, told TPM on Thursday.“But if Mr. Crowder is not going to prosecute, we have not gained anything, we’ve wasted resources.”

So far Crowder has not sought out police help after he was hit. Adamczyk pointed out he’s instead turned the video into a national conservative media tour.

“I saw Mr. Crowder’s interview on Sean Hannity and he wants to have an MMA-sanctioned fight with this individual,” he said. Crowder told Hannity that if the suspect doesn’t come forward for the MMA fight (which he said would be held for charity), Crowder would “press charges.”

Adamczyk did not sound impressed by the plan.

“You can’t leverage the law for personal gain,” he said.“Either you’re the victim, or you’re not. So if he’s the victim of an assault, and he wants to file a complaint, we will definitely investigate it.”

Meanwhile, media reports have poked holes in the original, edited video Crowder posted online after he was punched. The New York Times reported “a look at the video broadcast on the Sean Hannity show appears to show quite clearly that [Crowder] left out an important section of the footage when he put together his edit.”

The unedited footage shows “the man who punched Mr. Crowder being knocked to the ground seconds before and then getting up and taking a swing at the comedian,” the Times reported.

Adamczyk doesn’t understand why Crowder wouldn’t report the crime to the police and get the perpetrator prosecuted. He stressed that the MSP will not go forward with an investigation unless a crime is reported, and “there are all types of personal reasons” people sometimes don’t report a crime, he said.

“If somebody broke into your house, wouldn’t you immediately report it to the police? If someone assaulted you or your family member wouldn’t you report it immediately to the police?” Adamczyk said.“Well, why wouldn’t you, unless there’s a personal agenda there.
