This is, as many know a cause close to my heart. The use of member dues for political purposes. it should not be allowed, dues should be paid by choice, and any spending of them for political purposes should be forbidden.To practice many professions like teaching, nursing etc, individuals must join a union and must pay union dues. These dues are for collective bargaining purposes, but union leaders are using that money to support causes unrelated to determining wages and benefits in the workplace, causes many union members may not even know about and many they do not support.
Two union members donâ€™t think this is right, so they asked the B.C. Supreme Court to hear their voices in a case brought by their unions challenging the limits on election advertising.
