Just 7 percent of private-sector union members voted for their union…  Congress and state legislatures should at the least require government and private-sector unions to stand for re-election.  An even better reform would be to give workers representative choice — allowing individual employees to choose who represents them, irrespective of who other employees select.  This would remove the union’s monopoly over the workplace, allowing employees to negotiate contracts tailored to their needs.
