    As a 'RIGHT TO WORK STATE'...Against Unions...

    Florida House votes to ban automatic payroll deductions of union dues

    And as an added BONUS? Unions must ASK for permission to use Union DUES to back Political Candidates...

    'Bout time...and I applaud Florida Republicans for leading the way.

    :clap2:

    Let us hope that common sense Legislators in the remaining 49 pick up on the vibe...Florida is becoming HOSTILE TERRITORY for UNIONS.

    and these measures for the WORKER'S union should be made by big gvt, instead of the union members themselves?

    please explain WHY you think government should make the rules for them, and their group?

    Because Government workers have better things to do than to Make deductions to embellish UNION bank accounts...in other words?

    Let the Individual member write the check...maybe...just maybe they will see how LARGE a chucnk outta their income it is and tell the Unions to go screw themselves.

    And Oddball had it correct as well when he stated it should happen for individual citizens to write out their taxes on a monthly basis in the form of a check so they can see how much they are being SCREWED...outta sight outta mind...

    it should not be up to our gvt on how these members decide to run their own private groups, it should be up to the groups themselves, PERIOD.

    the gvt has not been given the power under the constitution to do this to these joined citizens....

    the gvt has been limited via our constitution on these type of things imho!

    Bingo.

    If they want to do it, then have a check automatically drafted from your account every month. Same end result to the union member.

    The government should not collect the fees to then turn them over to the unions.
