Exclusive Representation Represents No One But Union Officials
It may be difficult to believe, but not even all union members get represented under exclusive representation contracts. The only members truly represented are teacher union officials themselves. Larry Sand has the story in the City Journal.
The Supreme Court’s Janus v. AFSCME decision in June freed government workers nationwide—including public school teachers—from being forced to pay money to unions as a condition of employment. But that ruling was just a start toward liberating public servants from the grip of the unions that control their jobs. The next step should be eliminating the unions’ ability to establish themselves as exclusive representatives of all employees.
