    And do what? As I said all the things including family medical leave are incorporated into current labor law. So again what is their purpose today besides what fishstyx said political fundraising?

    The Occupational Safety & Health Administration doesn't cover certain workers either.

    If they aren't covered by the law, what on earth can the union do for them? please provide an example from a reliable news source with a link.

    On the other hand, if they are beneficial, workers don't deserve to free-ride on benefits that others have bargained (or paid others to bargain) to obtain. So it's a bit of a two-way street.

    That would mean the Union failed at getting their message of benefits across to all the workers. Besides, non union members in a union shop must pay their fair share of the cost to negotiate contracts, just no extra for the unions political activities. How is that unfair?

The taxpayers deserve to get a fair shake with the politicians that the unions routinely purchase for their own benefit.

    Sure.

    They like the higher pay, they like the benefits, the like the jobs security, they just DON'T LIKE to pay the small fee to pay for all the work their representatives and coworkers did to get those bennies.

    Thanks for posting that Dan! It says a lot about the employee rights act and why it's necessary.
