agency shop clause



Provision in a collective bargaining agreement that all employees of the firm (whether or not members of the union) pay a fixed monthly sum to the union as a condition of employment. This arrangement (where it is legal) serves as a compromise between the union's objective to eliminate free riders, and management's objective to make union membership a voluntary decision of each employee.
