The NLRB moved to heighten enforcement of Beck rights by instructing regional directors to issue complaints against unions when union officials fail to inform employees of the amount of reduced union fees they can pay by objecting to union membership. Under Beck, workers who refrain from union membership are only to be charged for fees germane to bargaining, and are supposed to be informed of the fee amount. An example memo issued to the Director of Region 32 read in part that “it is difficult for an employee to make an informed decision about whether to become a Beck objector without knowing the amount of savings that would result from the decision.”
