Machinists Union Requires Voter ID During Boeing Election. Hypocritical, No?

Recently, Unionized Boeing Machinists voted overwhelmingly to approve a four-year contract extension in a deal that grants the company a long stretch of elusive labor peace and  ends the NLRB federal complaint that had become a hot topic.   What you might not have known is that the IAM required photo ID for all voters.  So it suits unions to require voter ID when they want to ratify a new contract and ensure fair play?  Were they concerned that a non dues paying, illegal constituent could potentially offset the vote of a dues paying, legal member in good standing’s vote?  Will the AFL-CIO cease and desist in chanting “racist” when voter ID becomes  a requirement for voting in government elections?  I doubt it.
