The State of the Teacher Union

As teachers organize in protest across the nation, the Supreme Court is preparing to release a decision that could change laws governing teacher unions.  In March, the highest court in the land heard oral arguments for Janus v. AFSCME and plans to issue a decision on this landmark case this summer.
Mark Janus is an educator in Illinois, who disputed mandatory union fees.  Illinois is one of 22 fair sharestates, where collective bargaining is allowed.  In these states, teachers who do not join a union are required to pay reduced dues, since both members and non-members benefit from collective bargaining.  In contrast, 28 states have right to work laws.  In these states, collective bargaining is not permitted, so there is no need for mandatory agency fees.   Collective bargaining will end in the other 22 states if the Supreme Court decides in favor of Janus.
