An eager reader shares this letter from Avera Health to its thousands of South Dakota employees urging them to vote No on Initiated Measure 23, the “fair share” union dues measure:
The South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations also opposes IM 23, saying that allowing unions to charge non-members for collective bargaining and other services “will hinder health care workforce development.” (Um… how? nurses in Sioux Falls will revolt at fair-share dues, throw away their college educations, and go stock shelves at Hy-Vee? Or they’ll all pack up and go nurse in Minnesota… where Chapter 179A Section 6 Subdivision 3 authorizes fair-share union dues?
Anyway, back to work!
