brian just likes to tell people things, he does not discuss or listen. lol
NC is a RTW state and unions are still very active here, it is not the end of the unions. If a union is in, it takes a 100% vote to vote them out. That very rarely happens.
It does piss off the unions though as it requires them to negotiate on behalf of the entire bargaing unit, even if they are not union members. They also have to defend non-union members on contractual issues, grievances etc...
The company still has to negotiate a contract with the union.
All workers in the unit are covered under the negotiated contract if they join the union or not (they have no choice)
Workers in the unit that do not join the union have no say in anything that effects them, their working environment, benefits or pay.
RTW is not the end of unions or their influence.
