You have to make pragmatic choices on these issues, not ideological ones, and I think that's the smart call.
I made pragmatic choices every time I have taken a job, and decided whether to remain at one. Even when I worked in fast food I took advantage of several promotions (not that hard to stand out from the herd in fast food) to sign an agreement that benefited me. I don't need a group of people to negotiate for me and I consider it unethical to force me to pay for that disservice.
