UAW challenges Kentwood worker’s effort to break up with the union

In the Grand Rapids Press, 2009/01/12, there was an article about a Kentwood women who is challenging the fact the company is a UAW shop.

The disturbing fact is only 30% percent of the employees voted to become a union shop, which means a large majority did not want to be unionized.  A small minority of people apparently can force a company to be a Union Shop, which seems wrong. 

What happened to the majority vote meaning something?  What about the union dues that were collected from the majority who didn’t want it?

I hope this woman wins the case.  Majority rule should govern.
