    They use the due money to support legislators who support them. Workers can opt out unlike stockholders in corporations. It's an uneven playing field for a reason.

    Writing model legislation is another example of an uneven playing field!

    I'm sure that's how progressives feel or believe they want to feel after situations like this.

    Not every worker in the corporation, which is a person, believes the hush money should go to a Koch-PAC .

    Blaming progress---ives for perceived Union wrongs, especially lately, will end up on the steaming pile of manure .

    Volkswagon still wants the workers council, in spite of the Gulag GOPs .

    Quite the contrary. The NLRB is trying its damnedest to eliminate anyone from contesting union organizing efforts and, look at this thread, union supporters decry Tennessee politicians who went public opposing the UAW.

    Politicians should have no say in a company and its workers decision. They only got involved and did their darnest to scare the workers with lies for their own selfish reasons.

    Especially when they're in an area of strong Union shops.

    Think before you say these things.
    Try taking your own advice.
    Its just lefty dogma you are spouting.
    And partisan hackery from you

    VW's public position is politically useful in Germany. They are insulating themselves from the charge that they're taking jobs away from Germans to give to lower cost Americans. The workers' council would put management on the union side back home in Germany.
