This story exemplifies why workers need Right-to-Work laws! When unions truly represent worker's interests, workers will maintain membership and willingly pay union dues. But when the union leadership acts only in their own interests, then workers need to have the right not to support them with compulsory dues taken out of their paychecks with no voice in the matter.

It's funny, I here Chester is best buds w/Hoffa also. So,you know their are a lot butt kissing, money passing under the tables from the unions! Unions had their time and place,but there are enough rules and reg's to protect workers now. Someone should show where every penny of union money goes!
