We can all agree that the Unions have done very good in our past. They do hold onto some degree of relevancy today, but not in the way that they used
If all states would pass similar laws as the ones I am about to post, the Unions would still be functional for what they need to be functional for,
yet neutered, as to not becoming the unwieldy beast that they are today.
*Require every union to file yearly with the secretary of state, detailed reports concerning its organization, affiliations, and finances.
*Unions must send to the secretary of state, within twenty days after their execution, all work agreements that provided for collection by the
employer of dues and other payments for the union.
*Unions may not make any charge or exaction or receive money for fees, dues, fines, or assessments that will create a fund in excess of the reasonable
requirements of the union.
*Unions may not make financial contributions to any political party or to campaign expenses of any individual.
*They are required to keep itemizations of all expenditures and receipts and to make such accounts open to inspection of any member and, subject to
approval of the attorney general, to enforcement officers
*Expulsion of a member by a union may be only for good cause after public hearing within the union.
*Labor unions may be held liable in damage for loss resulting to a person or firm from picketing or strike by its members when such action is held to
be breach of contract by a court of competent jurisdiction.
*Public employees are not forbidden to organize or to join labor unions, but it is against declared public policy for any official or officials of the
state or any of its political subdivisions to enter into a collective bargaining contract with a labor organization respecting wages, hours, or
condition of employment of public employees.
*No person may be denied public employment because of membership or non membership in a labor organization.
*Fees, dues, fines, and assessments that may be collected by unions are limited by regulations as to control, use, and reasonableness.
*Checkoff of union dues by an employer is allowed only upon written authorization by the member paying dues.
