    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I chose other. I sit on the fence on the issue of forced unionization. Not a black-and-white issue.

    I oppose unions, think no worker should be forced to join a union, and think no worker should be subjected the threats or harrassment to force his decision in a union election.

    Provided that all laws are followed, I support whatever arrangement the union and the employer come up with.

    Re: Those who support workers ability to collectively bargain what do you support?

    I chose several of the above options, mostly relating to the fact that I'm not a fan of union shop.

    I am also not a fan of unions being powerful enough to buy off government officials -- but then again, I'm also not a fan of anyone being able to buy off government officials.

    I also believe that governments should not be able to use the force of law to break contracts they have entered into with unions.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Private sector unions should get the best deal they can through negotiations, collective bargaining, whatever. Public unions are not needed, not now not ever.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Banning unions/collective bargaining was one of the oppressive hallmarks of both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

    I disagree. Some public unions represent people we hire to go into harm's way. I don't think there's anything wrong with them getting together to ensure their interests are protected.

    Re: Those who support workers ability to collectively bargain what do you support?

    I choose: 'don't have to join a union'.

    However, when certain workers opt out a union it may cancel out the work the unions do to help members. On the one hand, I think people should be able to do what they want. But on the other, I think that choice might be damaging, in the long run, to all workers. I have to do more research on the matter of choice in this instance.

    Unions are a lot different now than what they used to be. But I think that worker's should always have the right to organize. I mean we wouldn't have some of the laws we have if it were not for unions and the violent labor history this country has.
