“When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.” - P. J. O’Rourke
“Socialism is great until you run out of someone elses money” Margaret Thatcher
can't see the problem with that
the federal statutes - in my (never humble) opinion - only serve to level the playing field so that labor and management can bargain fairly
just so you know, and from the union threads it is apparent few understand anything about union activities, the union is required by law to operate by democratic elections. each labor union/local must file periodic reports with the department of labor. there is a significant degree of transparency
in my own experience - i am a labor official - there is corruption in unions. that is often found when the members neglect to exercise their democratic obligation to oversee the organization which speaks for them. that is not unlike the result when an electorate refuses to exercise its responsibility to vote

Where do you stop the line at who gets to assemble?
Do you think corn producers who lobby government to get ethanol subsidies for their members (at taxpayer expense) should be disallowed from assembling? Should they be disallowed from donating to campaigns? After all, they're doing so for their own self-interest? Why are they better than teachers or others who actually work for government (as opposed to just taking money from government)?
It quite simply is NOT rocket science.
