Union Shop

A form of union security clause in which the employer agrees to hire either labor union members or nonmembers, on the condition that all non-union employees must either become union members within a specified period of time or lose their jobs. For those who object the joining of a union, they may be required to pay that portion to the union for the cost of representation of the employee, but not the other fees for political, or other costs. The clause requires that the employees are given at least 30 days from the date of hire to join the union before they may be fired for failure to join the union or pay dues.
