  •  My understanding is this is NOT so. (0+ / 0-)
    And the unions can certainly discriminate - they don't need to provide grievance services to non-members, for example.
    This practically defines the "free-rider" problem, particularly for RTWFL states, which require unions to provide services even for non-members.

    I think MLK Jr. himself may have stated that RTWFL promises "no rights" and "no work".  Like most conservative policy, it's a catchily-named policy to keep wages low and prevent anyone else from pooling their power to oppose them (conservatives).

    Other than gov't employee unions, they aren't negotiating w/ governments, they're negotiating w/ companies.  Sorry I don't have time to go into more detail here; I'm sure others can add more.
