Big Labor uses government just as big business uses government...in fact those are the two largest sources of money and influence.
What's so great about being in the union?
Half of Colorado's United Food and Commercial Workers would stop paying union dues if they could, according to the group's local president.
In a May 1 letter to members, Ernest Duran warns that the right-to-work initiative headed for Colorado's November ballot would decimate his ranks of dues-paying members.
"If this amendment passes, we will enter all future negotiations divided," Duran wrote. "In my opinion, we will enter with less than 50 percent of the workers as union members."
If Amendment 47 passes, no one could be forced to pay union dues. Under current state law, those working at union-organized companies may have to pay union dues whether they like it or not.
