UAW Member to union bosses: stop using my dues for politics
Earlier in the day, UAW member Terry Bowman testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that he was tired of UAW bosses using his dues for politics he opposes. Michigan is not a Right to Work state and thousands of workers in the state are forced to pay UAW fees against their will.
Bowman testified that the simplest way to fix the system would be to pass a National Right to Work Act that would allow all union members more influence over their unions. With the ability to leave a union, members have the power to force unions officials to listen. Without Right to Work, there is no Voluntary Unionism and only Compulsory Unionism that results in union kingpins rather than responsive officials.
