Does the DPA really want a union?

We took a look of heat over our insinuation that the DPA does not want a union, they want no union at all. Does this sound like the first art of a union's constitution?

Section 7. Dissolution
1. The association may be dissolved at any time by a two-thirds (2/3) Majority Vote of the active members in good standing.
2. The Board of Directors shall promptly conduct a vote as provided above by petition to the Secretary Treasurer by thirty-three percent (33%) of the active members in good standing, or on the written request of two-thirds (2/3) of All the members of the Board of Directors.
3. In the event of such dissolution, the Executive Council shall act as agent for the members and dispose of all physical assets of the Association by public auction, private sales, or other-wise, and any and all questions relating thereto shall be decided by a majority vote of the Board of Directors.
4. If the Association has any outstanding legal issues or any unresolved claims at the time of dissolution, the assets from the disposition of all physical assets as well as collected dues will be placed in a trust until all issues are resolved.
5. Once the Board or the appointed Trustee determines that all known or potential claims against the Association have been satisfied, all the liquid assets shall then be prorated to the active members in good standing at the time of such dissolution, in proportion to the dues that were paid by each member less any indebtedness.

Do you really think one of the first things the DPA needed to do was write a way out?
