•"I don`t need a union. My employer is fair and will take care of me. What could the union get for me that I wouldn`t have gotten anyway?"
•"The union does not do anything for you [grievances are not settled satisfactorily]. I don`t like the people who are running things in the union."
•"I don`t know enough about the local or the union movement."
