LINK Supreme Court deals major blow to public employee labor unions

"It is hard to estimate how many billions of dollars have been taken from nonmembers and transferred to public-sector unions in violation of the First Amendment," Alito wrote. "Those unconstitutional exactions cannot be allowed to continue indefinitely."

Damn unions! Trying to give those that do the work decent wages, health care, overtime, vacation pay, sick leave, safe work conditions, 2 work breaks a day, a pension. Who do they think they are banning child labor. They created the prosperous middle class. Damn unions!

Isn’t it great! (I recognize your collar). Now representation can plummet and union membership can disappear! ‘Scalito’s’ puppeteers’ dream! Perhaps, soon, we can migrate to Central America for work during our winters ..and they’ll be no need for them to come up here!

Siding with the oppressors often has temporary benefits … until they’re lost, too.

While I generally have no qualms with private sector unions, I firmly think taxpayer-funded unions should not even exist. Glad to hear they got a blow dealt to them, about time they get challenged.

Pesky unions looking out for workers. As opposed to politicians

Thank goodness for the block option.

That is interesting. If it went retroactive would the fees need to reimburse? On the converse is it going to make unions have to increase the regular dues and what effect will that have?

Actually, without union representation, the lower wages and abusive working conditions would more than ‘make up’ for the cost of those dues… But that’s incalculable, whereas ‘dues’ are/ were..

@Varn I have worked for unions both on the east coast and west coast in the east the unions actually protect the workers in the west coast the unions collect the dues and throw the worker under the bus.

@azzow2 I once worked in a private union as well, and got treated fairly.
