Union security refers to the right to represent a firm's workers and to be the exclusive bargaining agent for all employees in the unit. The five types of union security are closed shop, union shop, agency shop, open shop, and maintenance of membership agreement. In the closed shop form, the company can hire only union members. In the union shop form, the company can hire non-union people, but those people must join the union after a prescribed period of time and pay dues. In the agency shop form, employees who do not belong to the union still must pay union dues on the assumption that the union's efforts benefit all the workers. In an open shop situation, it is up to the workers whether or not they join the union. If they do not join, they do not have to pay dues. In the final type, maintenance of membership agreement, employees do not have to belong to the union, but union members employed by the firm must maintain union membership for the period of their contract.
