Thread regarding Union Pacific Corp. layoffs

Would you pay union dues if you did not have to?

People deserve the right to work without self-serving bureaucracy. Government technicians and postal workers are able to opt out. Why are we not? If it’s good enough for the government

I do think we should be able to shop around for representation. I can’t imagine working for this company without a union in place but the one I have is impotent. There’s no fight left I. The unions any more and people are leaving for better paying non union jobs in the electrical craft.

The unions and the dues paid have always been a touchy subject for many people. If the unions charge us dues, then why wouldn't we have the right to stop paying those dues if we're not getting the service we are in fact paying for? I don't know of anyone that goes to a gas station and pays for gas without pumping any. Why are the union dues any different?

It would definitely help my family out if the union would get back to basics and take less out of my paycheck for dues. when I saw all our brothers PSR furloughed my first thought was their union dues were for nothing but to enrich another group of fat cats

You would be an id--t to opt out of the union. If you think the company treats you badly now, wait until it isn’t unionized and see how bad it can really get.

He-l no. If the unions cared about us they would cut it especially after we get the raise so we could see more money in our pockets

We’re not getting much bang for our buck out of our legislative representatives.
