‘Height of Arrogance’ For a Politician to Tell a Worker That He Benefits From Unionization, Regardless of What the Worker Thinks


At a hearing Monday afternoon on a pending Right to Work measure in Missouri, National Right to Work Newsletter editor Stan Greer, speaking in his capacity as senior research associate for the Committee’s affiliated think tank, explained to legislators why union monopoly bargaining as authorized by Sec. 9(a) of the National Labor Relations Act and parallel provisions in other statutes does not remotely justify forced union dues and fees.

At one point in his testimony, Greer declared that it is the “height of arrogance” for any politician to tell a worker who doesn’t believe he benefits from unionization that he really does, and consequently should be forced to pay union dues or fees, or be fired.

Greer’s testimony begins at roughly one hour and nine minutes into the video link.
