Supreme Court divided over forced union fees

Protecting our communities means keeping our unions strong

No government worker should be forced to pay for union politics as a condition of employment.

The United States Supreme Court will hear the case of Janus v.

When I worked at CBS and ABC, I was ordered to join the American Federation of Radio and TV Artists. It's widely believed that Scalia would have voted against the unions.

"I submit that's a perfectly acceptable result", Messenger said.

Therefore, according to Green, they should have to pay. Janus, therefore, argues that the negotiation with the government and the political processes of the union are intertwined. But only 28 states are right to work. Cuomo spoke at a rally in New York City over the weekend.

The Trump administration is supporting Janus in his effort to persuade the court to overturn its 1977 ruling allowing states to require fair share fees for government employees.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Raunder attended Monday's oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31. If the unionism is good as they say it is, then the leadership has nothing to worry about it. "Why should we be any different?" In addition, the coffers of public sector unions would suffer if non-members were able to get services for free. "They told me, Rebecca, don't worry about those teachers who were about to lose jobs".

After saying that they had done so in three cases, Justice Stephen Breyer asked a question to turn the discussion back to the specifics of the Janus case.

In 2014, the Supreme Court said that "except in perhaps the rarest of circumstances, no person in this country may be compelled to subsidize speech by a third party that he or she does not wish to support". Union cheerleaders were pessimistic.

"The attack that's coming against unions and really against working people, we know what's funding it", he said.

"It was argued, it was scheduled to be decided, and Justice Scalia died", Hebert explained.

"That was the most devastating day", says Friedrichs.

The court has a 5-4 conservative majority.

But Local 150 is the first to file suit.

Justice Neil Gorsuch is expected to be a pivotal player during Monday's hearing. Because no one had asked them. He said he opposes his union's fight for wage and benefit increases when the state is "in pretty awful financial condition right now". But as one union president points out, unions do not only fight for their member's rights. "He only has to pay the fees that are used to represent him". The chart shows that we had reached today's high rates of public-sector unionism by the early 1980s, which is when hard data on membership begins.

Janus doesn't want to be forced to pay for something he doesn't agree with. "Sure. I'm not going to lie to you".

"What it effectively does is allow for people to freeload off the system", she said. But who judges what is a "benefit"? "The benefits aren't worth the moral costs".

In a 2016 Chicago Tribune opinion piece, Janus wrote, "The union voice is not my voice". When he cited "mileage reimbursements", Roberts disagreed: "It's all money".
