Powerful letter from Rutgers AAUP Leadership.
....While your paycheck will increase modestly as this fee disappears, this could be the most expensive pay raise you’ve ever seen. One independent analysis suggests that if we don’t retain enough union members, our pay could decrease by as much as 3.7% per year ...
This ruling immediately turns all non-members into what is known as a “free rider”—i.e., one who benefits from the gains while leaving the costs to others.
