Half of Union Members Want Out, According to Union Boss
“Half of Colorado’s United Food and Commercial Workers would stop paying union dues if they could,” according to the union’s boss, the Denver Post reports.
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.”
In other words, if given a choice, most union members would keep their dues money in their pockets. No wonder union bosses insist in coercing people to join.
