Federal contractors: Notify staff of right to skip certain union dues

The Bush administration recently ordered federal contractors to notify workers who are not in a union, but must pay union dues, that they have the right not to pay certain portions of dues.

Companies must notify these workers that they only have to pay their share of union dues related to collective bargaining, contract administration and grievance adjustment. Workers can object to, and seek a refund for, payments the union uses for other purposes, such as supporting political candidates.

While the order is limited to employers with federal contracts, the president is backing legislation that would give all union workers the right to prevent their dues from being spent on political activity they don't agree with.
