|The original post was a scan of the information concerning the rights of nonmembers working in a union or closed shop to protest certain uses of their "agency fees". The scan was unreadable.
|Here are the highlights of an open letter published each year in our union magazine. Agency fees are the charges for nonmembers to work in a union shop. The theory being the pay scales and benefits earned by dues paying members should not be enjoyed by nonmembers for free.
All funds expended on collective bargaining.
All funds expended on contract administration, grievance adjustment, and arbitration.
All funds expended on internal governance and administration.
Political expenditures (all kinds).
New member recruitment.
Lobbying except for that which is directly related to ratifying or implementing CBA.
Dues to the AFL-CIO.
Charitable or educational group contributions.
It is too bad the concept of freeloading benefits others pay for in the work place does not carry the same stigma as a poor single mother working for minimum wage receiving food stamps but that is the mentality (of) many people in our various government offices.
