    200 protesters out of the 700,000 members. It is just like any other politial move, it is always teh vocal few who has the same agenda as the media that is heard. As a union member, i like this new law. It gives me a very profound voice to my union that i dont like their policies. in the past, i was told to take it up with my representative. Well now, my check book is my representative.
