No, just back to the days where unions couldn't extort money out of non-union workers to elect corrupt politicians.

@scorpio:

The case centered on a California regulation that allowed unions to charge employees in a particular “agency shop” annual fees to pay for union activities, even if the employees opted not to join the union.

In June 2005, a local branch of the Service Employees International Union sent out a notice telling employees in its shop what the monthly dues for the year would be, but also gave notice that the fee could be increased at any time without additional notice. Shortly after, SEIU would propose a temporary increase of 25 percent in employee fees in order to fund a pro-union political campaign.

When an employee called SEIU offices to complain about fee increases for political purposes, an area manager told the employee that nothing could be done and adding that “we (the union) are in the fight of our lives,’” according to court accounts. The employee would later become a plaintiff in the case.

Thanks DOG,
Scorpio never reads the articles, he just spouts off whatever pops into his little head at the time. That's why his comments rarely make any sense.

forcing non-members to pay for member-activities... sounds like what we are already doing with all our public aide... and now the unions want to turn into a group with THEIR hands out too? um... veto away big boys.
