LETTER TO THE OREGONIAN EDITOR RE: UNIONS

Cascade Policy Institute's latest anti-union diatribe continues the strange anti-union argument we've seen ("Nearly a third of Oregon union workers want out," June 24).
Steve Buckstein trumpets the "fact" that nearly a third of Oregon union members would opt out of their unions. Nearly a third, according to a series of Google Consumer Surveys, means that 68.8 percent of union members are perfectly happy with their union membership and everything they get because of their union membership. Cascade Policy Institute's argument against unions, despite a 68.8 percent approval rating, sure makes for a strange democracy.
Anti-union groups always fail to mention that union members can elect to decertify their union with a majority vote. You know, democracy via majority rule.
