In the News: Supreme Court to Hear Case on Unions, Non-Member Financial Requirements

On Monday, February 26, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in  Janus vs. AFSCME, a case that could “deal a potentially crippling blow to public sector unions.”
The case was brought by Mark Janus, an Illinois government employee. He argues that he should not be required to pay a fee to the public sector union he has chosen not to join. He sees the required agency fee as a violation of his First amendment rights since the union takes positions he opposes, positions which he views as political.
