Unions claim they are altruistic organizations. However, when the collection of union dues are at stake, they become apoplectic:
Union members from across Pennsylvania traveled to York City on Wednesday to rally against a state House bill they say will crush unions and kill the middle class.
Dozens of Teamsters held signs in Cherry Lane Courtyard, announcing opposition to House Bill 1507. If passed, the bill would prohibit the automatic deduction of union dues and political contributions from the paychecks of public employees.
“If it goes through, it will slowly push unions out of Pennsylvania,” said Jason Hagens, a Mount Wolf resident and corrections officer at York County Prison. [Emphasis added.]
