my fiance's employer has been deducting money every month from his paycheck for union dues. it is a very big, well established union, however, the workers get NONE of the things the union promises in their mission statement. There is no collective bargaining and the workers have never had the opportunity to elect a union rep. If anyone tries to find anything out about the union, they are harassed and picked on until they are terminated. None union memebers paying union dues and still recieving "bonus checks"The company consists of about 55 people and had a union of about 25 members 2 years ago..they have now got the union down to only 6 members. When try to complain to local chapter, it seems like they are working with the company more then the workers..seems like its all corrupt..
