I’m not sure how much they can get involved in civil litigation. I can say that the former local chapter president was deposed and was very helpful to me (while also being honest).

As evidenced in my own deposition, I was very new to unions when I moved to Michigan. I did not know very much. There are people at WNEM like David Custer who do not pay union dues but get all of the negotiated union benefits. I voluntarily joined and paid dues because the negotiated benefits were admittedly better than the non-union stations I worked at and it wouldn’t have been right to not contribute.

Also, I will add, the amount of organized staff at wnem who do not pay dues is VERY LOW. I know that when I was there I could count on one hand.

I was was going to make a reference to gypsies, tramps, and thieves, but it is too accurate for management.

If you want to gripe about people getting union benefits without paying dues, complain to the Republican Party. Their cohorts in Lansing made the rules. No one should be forced to join a union, nor reap any benefits they don't pay for. But that's not on them. Blame that on Republicans, who are trying to destroy unions.
