I have a relative who is a school teacher. He told me his School District had a union for teachers but he didn’t feel they were effectively representing him and his fellow teachers. So, while he never joined the union, he was still required by law to pay “fair share” dues to the union. On their side, the unions did participate in collective bargaining and my relative got whatever benefits the union obtained for their dues-paying members.
