Most Union Members Believe that Union Bosses Look Out For Themselves
Most public and private sector union members believe that union officials “look out mostly for themselves.” 79% either believed that union bosses were looking out for themselves or were too uncomfortable to say how they felt. Only 21% think that union officials look out for the “little guy” according to a recent National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation – Frank Luntz poll. The poll questions did not qualify how many of the respondents were union officials or were related to union officials.
Again, the poll highlights the inherent flaws in forcing someone to pay into a union in order to get or keep a job. When a majority of members believe that their union officials are looking out for themselves rather than the members, there is a problem with a forced unionism system that exists in 28 U.S. States.
