Agency Shop

Agency shop is a form of union security in which employees that do not belong to the union must still pay union dues on the assumption that union efforts benefit all workers.

Agency shop means nonunion members must pay union dues because the union acts as their agent when bargaining with management.

Agency shop is a company where all employees pay union dues, whether or not they are union members.
