There are many disadvantages in being in the union. We will not say that all union contracts are poor, because certainly there are good contracts that have been established over the past 50 years. What we will state is that this is the minority and has not been the case in many, many years. Among the disadvantages of being in the union include:
- No threat of being fired for refusing to pay dues
- No possibility of a union-called strike
- No risk of a union negotiating less for you than you have today
- No risk of having a union ignore your concerns
- No risk of having a union put you on trial for violating its rules
- No possibility of a union trial board fining you money
- No union bosses spending your money on political causes or candidates you may not support
- No possibility of a union negotiating away things you have for things it wants
- No union telling you that you cannot speak for yourself
- No union having the ability to refuse to process your issues, complaints or grievances
- No risk of your confidential issues being made public for everyone to see.
- No risk in a high to work state when one decides not to pay dues, but then has no say on whether they approve the contract or not.
These are just some of the negatives. Becoming educated on the process is the greatest tool. All employees should be educated rather than have the preconceived theory that unions mean guaranteed more money, free healthcare plans and big pensions. This is simply not the case.
