Do you have any number of members of MSEA , state workers ?

Congress reintroduces the employee rights act
Employee Rights Act
THE EMPLOYEE RIGHTS ACT BY US SENATOR ORIN HATCH
Next, my bill would require every unionized workplace to conduct a secret ballot election every three years to determine whether a majority of employees still want to be represented by the union. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, less than 10 percent of current union members voted for the union at their workplace. Most union members simply took jobs at sites that were already unionized, many of which require union membership as a condition of employment. Under current law, if any of these employees want to decertify a union, they must go through an arduous process. It is a nearly impossible task. In addition to overcoming the many procedural hurdles provided by laws and regulations, they are required to speak out publicly against the union and subject themselves to public criticism, if not outright intimidation. Not surprisingly, very few even make the effort.
But why should workers have to wait every three (3) years to dump their union?
Labor Unions shouldn’t be treated any differently than Law firms or Restaurants.
No worker should have to have the State’s permission to fire their unions.
Nevertheless, the Employees Rights Act is a step in the right direction of freedom!

Since Janus, AFSCME lost 98 percent of its agency fee-paying members in 2018. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) lost 94 percent of its fee-paying members. Combined, AFSCME and SEIU lost more than 210,000 agency fee members after the Janus ruling. Their payments accounted for 70 to 80 percent of full union dues.
