Compelled Union Dues Are Back At The Supreme Court: What Happens Next?
This morning, in one of its first actions after returning from summer recess, the Supreme Court announced it will hear Janus v. AFSCME, a case that challenges compulsory union dues. Janus will be one of the most influential cases of this term. Twenty-three states currently compel all public employees to pay union fees. A decision by the Court could overturn the laws in each of those states and set a landmark First Amendment precedent.
