I see this a a freedom of association issue
If a group of people vote on having a third party for representation, then so be it
However, that 3rd party should not be entitled to represent any new employees without their consent.
With this in mind, the 3rd party representor ought to make their case to each new employee.
Also I do not like the idea of giving the 3rd party sole domain over the employee representation. Employees ought to have the ability to hire any third party representation that they see fit... or none at all.
