New Poll: 82% of Americans Don’t Want to Join a Union

Today, the Center for Union Facts (CUF) released a unique new poll which found that 82% of non-unionized American workers would not like their jobs to be unionized. The poll, which was conducted by the Opinion Research Corporation of Princeton, New Jersey, clearly demonstrates that an overwhelming number of Americans have no interest in joining a union.

Despite this, Democratic leadership in Congress continues to push the deceptively-named Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), which would effectively force millions of Americans into unions against their will by eliminating their right to a secret ballot vote. This poll indicates that there is no national mandate for a dramatic change in the law to make it easier to unionize. It further exposes the fact that EFCA’s backers are a small group of labor elites trying to push legislation that goes against the interests of America’s workforce.

Unlike labor unions and their affiliated front groups who refuse to release any of their polls’ methodology, CUF’s poll is a straight-forward measurement of Americans interest in joining a union. In addition to gathering basic demographic information, we asked the following two questions to respondents (n = 1,142) who indicated that they were currently employed.

The unions are what is hurting our auto makers. The auto makers need to file for bankruptcy and close their doors. Then they should reopen and hire all non-union employees.

Actually, 82 percent of those who DON'T ALREADY BELONG TO A UNION do not want their jobs to be unionized. And of those, HALF ARE UNEMPLOYED!

Great little poll you found.

Unions are an obsolete group of organizations. They were built up in times when workers needed someone or something to protect their rights as workers. There are now federal laws protecting working Americans from predatory and destructive employers. The government stepped in and changed the rules to protect America's workforce from being overworked, underpaid and generally abused which was the original purpose of Unions. The need for them is no longer here and they have a strangle hold on many industries, they are no longer necessary and are only holding back the companies whose workers they control. Unfortunately, they also have persuasive, charismatic and ruthless recruiters who keep workers under their control and intimidate those who would speak out against them.

I have worked union and non union jobs and there is basically no difference.
An employer can fire you with good reason or else they get sued.
The union may help you keep you job,but if you don't pay your dues-they fire you.
If your local goes on strike,the big shots sit in a Conference room all day while the members are out on the picket line rain or shine.
You have to live off your strike fund because you can't draw unemployment.
The union bosses draw full pay.
The laws that are on the books are due to the political activities of the unions,but if the unions go,so do the laws.
