I would not want belligerent volunteers on a campaign. It is easier to do harm to a campaign than good.

I've never had a private employer ask me to campaign or support any politician. Usually politics, like religion is not typically discussed at work by management to employee.

This is a trojan horse to imply that private business is playing dirty pool. When in fact Unions come closer to the deep end of that pool than any employer I`ve ever worked for.

And I don't have an agenda here, I`m genuinely asking! Also, I apologize for the misspelling of "companys" if, in fact, my submission was spelled that way (and I have a feeling it was)! And if so, dang, I`m ashamed.

Okay, I realize *this* case was about a union, but doesn't the question still stand. By the same logic covered here, couldn`t a company (an independent entity with rights under Citizen`s United) compel its employees to campaign for a candidate?

@HumanAction

That sums it up nicely. I'm employed at FedEx, it may not be explicitly called a contract, but me and FedEx have our own copy of the "agreement" between us.
