SCOTUS discusses right-to-work for all public employees

By Jack Spencer | Michigan Capitol Confidential

U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday discussed turning the United States into a right-to-work nation regarding public sector unions.

The issue came up in a case related to union “dues skim” issues happening in Illinois, Michigan and other states around the nation.

“They were seriously considering reversing the Abood ruling,” said Patrick Wright, senior legal analyst with Mackinac Center for Public Policy. “That was the case out of Michigan in which the court established that public sector employees could be forced to pay mandatory agency fees to unions.”
