Impact of No More Public Employee Union Dues or Agency Fees
The U.S. Supreme Court has just ruled that the clauses in collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) requiring employees to pay union dues/agency fees, or be fired, are unconstitutional. If you're the human resources manager of your state, county or local government, then you need to understand the impact of this decision.
Do you still have to provide the same benefits to nonunion members as you do union members?
