Monopoly Bargaining: Say Goodbye to Your Rights
National Right to Work Foundation President Mark Mix recently wrote an Op-Ed for the Washington Times, in which he explains how union monopolies form, and what they mean for the worker when they do. The result: A union monopoly that decides everything for you, even if the majority of workers disagree.
Hereâ€™s a sneak peak of the article written by Mr. Mix:
When union officials take control of a workplace, they get a legal monopoly over all contract bargaining and can negotiate the terms of employment for every worker, even those who object. Monopoly bargaining is an extraordinary government-granted power that Big Labor protects at all costs.
Union officials insist that if they have the theoretical support of a majority of workers, all other workers must have union â€œrepresentationâ€ imposed on them. At its core, forced unionism is contrary to the constitutional principle of free association, and denies workers the right to choose their own representative. But thereâ€™s another problem: Union officials donâ€™t even need majority support to get or stay in power.MARK MIX, THE WASHINGTON TIMES
