Look for the Union Label...

... laying in the gutter outside the Wisconsin State Capital.

According to Ann Althouse: the state's biggest civil service employee union isn't even going to try to get recertified. The union "leadership" can't even guarantee 51% of its membership will vote for them, they say.

The Wisconsin teachers' union has already had to fire their entire political action staff, because their members are holding back their once-mandatory "donations."

As the old saying goes, "Everything that isn't mandatory is forbidden."  The unspoken corollary to that, of course, is, "but as soon as it isn't mandatory, get out of the way!"

Recertification is a necessity for a union to continue negotiating on behalf of its membership.

So, little Jimmy Hoffa and his rentacrowd to the contrary, it looks like, given the chance, the only people the rank and file will be "taking out" will be their Democrat-puppet union bosses....

Union members saying "no" to their union? Sounds like tough love for thugs. Guess the once loyal members have found out that it isn't so cold in the world outside the union. They can fend for themselves, just like most of us. Wonder what they'll use the former dues money on?
