Deep Concerns Over BigGov Unionism

All states should ban collective bargaining in the public sector
Alarmingly, 28 states have “agency shop rules” that require public-sector employees to either join the union or pay a fee to the union.

When government enables and strengthens unions, dues-paying members flourish, filling union coffers. This allows public sector unions to use big money and political clout to elect favorite political candidates, almost always Democrats. Union bosses then get to negotiate with the very public officials they usher into office.

Public sector unions are among the most powerful special interest groups in America. In the 2010 elections, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) was the biggest outside spender with total contributions of nearly $90 million. More than 98 percent of this money went to Democratic candidates and causes.

That's especially disconcerting when the votes of members were nearly evenly split between Republicans and Democrats. It's clear that union dues are advancing the quid pro quo relationship of union leadership and government officials.

There is no right to collective bargaining. It is an unconstitutional legislated privilege given to unions by friendly lawmakers. The federal courts have been clear on this point. All citizens have the right to associate in groups to advocate their special interests to the government. But it is something entirely different to grant any one interest group special status and access to the government decision-making process.

Public-sector unions are desperate to preserve their powerbase. That's why unionists from across the country were herded to Madison and Columbus. Interspersed between insults and slurs hurled at state leadership, the union bosses asserted that it is illegal to strip organized labor of the “right” to collective bargaining. Now you know the truth.
