Many workplaces consist of both union and non-union workers. Non-union and union workers receive the benefit (or detriment) of a union. Because some workers are not union members, they are not required to pay the higher membership fees. But they are assessed a fair share fee to cover the cost of representing all workers in the collective bargaining process. Almost 40 years ago the Supreme Court held that agency fees were constitutional. Now the Supreme Court is being asked to overturn that decision. Last month, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on whether the fair share fees assessed to non-union members are constitutional under the First Amendment. If the Court overturns its previous ruling, it could impact thousands of collective bargaining agreements and millions of public employees. We can expect a decision later this year.
