Supreme Court: Unions can't collect compulsory fees from home healthcare

Labor expert Norman A. Solomon, PhD, professor of management at Fairfield University's Charles F. Dolan School of Business, says the ruling is a blow to unions but not a fatal blow. According to Dr. Solomon, "[t]he more significant issue will be whether the Supreme Court in the future decides that ANY compulsory payment of union dues by full-fledged public employees violates the first amendment. Such a decision would require unions operating in the public sector to spend valuable time and resources convincing workers to pay dues and to establish mechanisms by the union to collect those dues - this would be a major blow to public sector unions."
