SEIU loses a big one, could effect other groups

Jun 21st, 2012 | By | Category: Courts, Unions

SCOTUS handed SEIU a large defeat today in the case of Diane Knox.  Ms. Knox if a fair-share member of SEIU.  The SEIU assessed all of its members, including fair-share members, a significant hit for political action.  Ms. Knox sued, and it went to the Supreme Court of the United States.  In that ruling today SCOTUS said that the unions must make it much easier for fair-share members to opt out of strictly political dues assessment.

I don’t know what kind of ratio there is between full members and fair-share members for SEIU and other groups, but depending on what that ratio is this could be a big deal of other public employee unions.

Once upon a time CCPOA had a microscopic fair-share membership.  Now, I am not so sure.
