I know a lot of Union Guys (no Problem with that) that are gun owners, but they vote what they are told and therein lies a lot of the problem, getting the Weinsteins, Greenwalds and Sweeneys over and over and over.
Property taxes is another yet similar problem.
There's a difference between "voting what you're told" and "voting your own interests." Paying the mortgage and putting food on the table is a priority for a lot of people, not just union workers. But no one is obligated to vote the way their union urges them to anyway, and members should tell reps when they're unhappy with what the executive board is doing. The job of the union is to protect workers, not play footsie with a particular party.
