This may seem like an odd question, but isn’t it curious that a multi-billion dollar company is worried about you having to pay dues?
Did you know that most Companies pay dues? They do. They pay annual dues to trade associations, or the Chamber of Commerce.
Why? Because these organizations represent companies by lobbying Congress, drafting laws and providing other services. The Company pays dues because they know it benefits from this representation. The Company also knows how you would benefit from representation by a union: a written contract, a voice at work, an independent grievance procedure and a voice in Congress.
So, the Company does not want you to pay dues because they do not want you to have representation.
