And it's not that hard from a legal standpoint to make the argument that if a union decertifies then all contracts to all union members are null and void. The union negotiated the CBA, the CBA set the terms for their contracts, there is no current CBA so the contracts cannot be enforced, if the union goes away then there cannot legally be a CBA so there for any contracts that adhere to a CBA wouldn't be legal. Ergo, all current contracts would be illegal and therefore removed.
There are numerous legal precendents in this case:
Brown v. Pro Football, Inc. is perhaps the most direct and notable. The court has held that labor law provides a non-statutory exemption from anti-trust laws.
