Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME

The Supreme Court rule deals a big blow to public sector unions, barring them from collecting agency fees of government workers who are not members that they represent in bargaining. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to overrule a previous decision known as Abood v. Detroit Board of Education , decided back in 1977, which ruled that agency fees could not be used to pay for lobbying or political activity, unions could still force non members to pay them in exchange for collective bargaining and other apolitical services the union provides. The decision could cost labor unions millions of dollars as many nonunion workers can decide to keep their money that they would pay to union, and still receive benefits that unions negotiate for. To read more about the Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME, click here .
