A powerful union is getting into the fight against Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has started a petition to get local politicians to vote “No” on Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
The SEIU’s petition is no doubt in response to a recent decision handed down by the Supreme Court.
In June, the Supreme Court handed down a 5-4 decision that all but crippled unions.
Janus v. AFSCME signified the end of forced union dues and agency fees as a condition of employment.
With roughly 5 percent of its workers represented by agencies, SEIU is staring down the barrel of a major lawsuit.
In addition to the possibility of having to pay back fees, the union is now at risk of members cutting ties to the union completely.
In essence, SEIU, as well as many other unions, may find itself out of business very soon.
Fighting the Fight
For good reason, unions such as SEIU see the writing on the wall.
If another conservative-oriented justice is put on the Supreme Court, they know their future at stake.
A letter issued by the union stated: “Kavanaugh is a narrow-minded extremist who will chip away at our rights in our workplace, the doctor’s office, and the ballot box.”
The problem for unions, though, is they have been abusing their members for years.
The corruption within unions is well-documented and these days, most believe all they do is shorten workers’ paychecks.
If the unions were doing their jobs, they would not have so many unhappy members.
Employers today are forced to treat workers better, give them better benefits, and offer them a fair wage.
It is just too easy for someone to shine a negative light on any employer, the result of which is the fact most unions today are antiquated and obsolete.
Our guess is these efforts are all for naught, as most experts believe it is just a matter of time before Kavanaugh wins his confirmation.
