I'd like to see everyones thoughts/ideas on whether or not scabs (for the purpose of this thread a scab is an hourly employee that doesn't pay union dues) should be addressed in the next contact. Would it be legal? How should it be addressed? Obviously this mainly applies to those of us in the RTW states but everyone else please chime in. My solution would be simple. I do believe everyone should have the right to choose whether or not they join the union but if they decided no then they should be at the bottom of seniority lists until they join. I'm tired of these people refusing to join but don't hesitate to take advantage of seniority. Among other things that mostly exist due to the fact there is a union to demand and enforce them. Let them keep the pay though. That way when they are stuck with the worst jobs/routes they will at least appreciate the union negotiated pay that they are getting for the extra heavy work those lower seniority jobs entail. And maybe see the error in their ways and join.
