    Well, you made a choice to start a union and you made a choice to represent everyone.
    I know, I believe that is federal law. I was answering your question you asked...

    Last time I'm checked people are hired on by employers, not fellow workers.
    And your not forced to take the job now are you?

    Then work to repeal that law instead of working to force people into your group.

    And your not forced to take the job now are you?
    Who cares? I'm doing business with an employer, not fellow workers. I shouldn't be forced to join some group of the workers when I'm agreeing to be paid for my work. Adding on different memberships to the employer arrangement is illegitimate nonsense.

    It's like, hey, you want to join my club and when I say hell yeah, you say I have to join another group that fellow club members founded that I may or may not be interested in. There is no real merit to such nonsense.

    What about the "free market"? Dont want to pay dues, go find another job, perhaps a private sector teaching job?
    Or those teachers can negotiate their own contract- bet they get paid less. Then the form a group, oh yeah, expenses will arise, then dues come in.
    Oh wait that is what they are against.

    Who cares if they are paid less? If they don't want to join your group you have no right to force them to be a member. If they want to take their chances on their own that is their choice and I see no reason to not give it to them.

    Compulsory union membership is an affront to free people.

    Just union bashing. Perhaps they should look at the costs of what they negotiated as pay, benefits and pensions. That is the real issue here. Detroit is a classic example.
    Address the problem face on, not in a roundabout way, unions have a place.

    Remember how SSM was just following American Principles of liberty and justice? Well apparently forcing people into your group is to. I was unaware that forced membership was liberty, but liberals made sure to correct me on my error.

    If unions can't sell themselves to workers they really don't have a place, sorry.

    To all or just a small number?
    Members of a union local can always decertify can they not?

    Big case will be heard by the Supreme Court regarding union dues in non-right to work states. Whenever right to work vs non-right to work cases get brought up all I can think of is one cartoon, which I think hits the nail right on the head.

    Sounds like a pretty easy win for the unions. The four liberals will side with so will at least Roberts. Roberts will say if you don't like the situation, take it up with your state legislature.
