So many people are so mad at the union leadership it has come to this for them. Imagine what might happen if people don't have to pay dues. I'm opposed to this scenario. What the Unity leadership should do is put forth a package of democratic reforms. But they won't. They would rather have 100% control of half a union.
I am updating this with the 2 comments this post has gotten so far, both anti-Unity but with very different perspectives.
