    What exactly do unions do for us....besides collect dues? Just reflecting on the past four years, I don't remember any union actively fighting for the federal employee. I think unions were important some 60-70 years ago, but they are honestly past their prime and serve no useful purpose......

  • I agree. The collect dues, give salaries to union fat cats, and do nothing for the rank-and-file.

  • Union Leaders - WAKE UP
    For some reason union leaders fail to recognize that many of their dues paying members are republicans and they are tired of seeing their dues going to political candidates they don't support. The hypocrisy shown by these unions is also driving members away. Federal employees have seen their take home pay decrease every year under the current administration and you hardly hear a peep from the union leaders. They are much more vocal and critical when a republican president recommends a pay freeze. Obama didn't recommend a pay freeze; he actually instituted one (2 full years). What did the unions have to say? Very little. Could you imagine the backlash had GWB instituted a 2 year freeze? AHHH, the hypocrisy.

  • Unions served their time and did wonderful things....MANY YEARS AGO.
    They no longer help anyone else but themselves. For the life of me, I can't fingure out who in their right mind would want to belong to one.

  • Fed Workers need to pay their fair share....
    In Maryland, all state workers are required to pay union dues - - even if they aren't members of the union. They are being forced to pay their fair share. It is time Federal workers did the same...
