Maybe it's "political", but negotiate working conditions, set up grievance procedures, etc

You know, like a union.


Did a union rape your mother or something? Is that it? :BigGrin3:

You know what I think really has Wildcat unhinged over this?
The same folks he gets his talking points from promised him this decision would bust the union once and for all. But really it won't.

When the employer is the government all of that is political. You support forced political speech, you are undeniably an enemy of freedom.
Do you have questions about God?

The funny part is I have no problem with only members paying dues (which is the practical import of the decision) and yet he has to keep arguing because he hates unions so much. :coolspecs:

You just made the Orwellian statement that forced speech is actually free speech. You are an enemy of freedom who thinks the government can force political speech on citizens as a condition of employment.

Paying dues is not speech, even if the contrary assertion is a doctrine of your stupid fucking religion.
