UNION MEMBERSHIP CONTINUES TO GROW DESPITE YOU KNOW WHAT
Given that we found it reassuring to read a recent Washington Post report about unions adding more and more new members despite the Washington political climate they have had to live within since last January, we thought you might too. So we are passing along a link to the story and let’s hope all unions achieve a similar membership increase to what AFGE and NFFE report to the Post writers it is on target to reach this first year of the new Administration.
Why cite NFFE? They serve more to prevent other unions from actually representing employees than anything else. NFFE “represents” 110,000 bargaining unit employees and has fewer than 8,000 members. That’s 100,000 employees who would otherwise have union representation without NFFE.
