    Collective Bargaining is a negotiated contract between the employer and the union and is agreed upon by the union membership.  

    And for those in the private sector who don't want to join a union in a union shop, they can resign--it's called Beck Rights and it is at least fairer than Right to Work.  Under Beck Rights, people still have to pay for representation, negotiation and administration of the contract--just not political activity.  So, in this case, they are not freeloading off the union.

      there is no requirement to pay for representation, negotiation, or administration. Freeloading is allowed, and indeed is the entire motivation of these laws, since the idea is to harm the union and lessen it's power.

      Under current law, any union member who does not wish to support the political activities of the union is entitled to receive a refund of those amounts under current law.
