The California Supreme Court has just ruled that Los Angeles County must provide the union representing its employees under an “agency shop” agreement with the home addresses and telephone numbers of all county employees, including non-union employees. County of Los Angeles v. Los Angeles County Employee Relations Comm'n (Serv. Employees Int'l Union, Local 721), No. S191944 (Cal. May 30, 2013). Although the Court recognized that non-union employees have a right to privacy in their home addresses and telephone numbers under the California Constitution and their disclosure would constitute a serious invasion of that right, the Court determined the union’s interest in communicating with employees significantly outweighed their privacy rights.
