Supreme Court Hits Labor Unions (and Democrats) in the Pocket

Never Trumpers proven wrong yet again

Published

The Supreme Court made a ruling Wednesday that will significantly hinder the ability of organized labor unions to collect money from their members.

“States and public-sector unions may no longer extract agency fees from nonconsenting employees,” Justice Samuel Alito said in his majority opinion.

Public sector employees will no longer be required to pay dues to local unions that represent them. Today’s ruling overturns a 40-year-old Supreme Court decision that previously allowed states to force employees in unionized jobs to pay union dues, even if the employee chose not to join the union. Around 20 states had adopted the policy

“More than half the states already have right-to-work laws banning mandatory fees, but most members of public-employee unions are concentrated in states that don’t, including California, New York, and Illinois,” according to AP.

President Donald J. Trump weighed in almost immediately after the ruling, providing a practical explanation of what the decision means.

“Supreme Court rules in favor of non-union workers who are now, as an example, able to support a candidate of his or her choice without having those who control the Union deciding for them,” he said. “Big loss for the coffers of the Democrats!”

Historically, unions are some of the most powerful lobbyists and financial supporters on behalf of Democrats.
