3. If they are working on providing benefits to the union members

(acting as a liaison for city employees, organizing meetings for employees, preparing documentation for occasional meetings, etc.), then I would say that it is a reasonable expense and it should not impose a hardship on the employee by requiring them to use leave time or not get paid. However, it does cross the line when political campaigning, electioneering, and trying to sway the votes of public officials and that cost should not be borne by the taxpayers and the union should pay those expenses.
