[Supreme Court curtails public sector unions] HARRIS ET AL . v . QUINN



Today the Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment prohibits the forced agency fees from a third party (union), for workers who do not want union representation. The decision was 5-4 with Justice Aleto writing the majority opinion.

This is still another blow to the Obama agenda and a victory for individual rights.


Coming from a right to work state, I never did understand when and where the right to unionize became a mandatory obligation. I am pleased that this has now been recognized as unconstitutional, at least in regards to the public sector. I guess private sector employers are still allowed to discriminate in some states, at least in areas approved by the Democratic Party there.
