Supreme Court Issues Ruling in "Fair Share" Union Fee Challenge

The U.S. Supreme Court issued its long anticipated ruling in the Janus v. AFSCME case involving a challenge to the "fair share" requirement that requires payment of fees by employees who are not members of the union. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff, finding the state of Illinois' requirement that non-consenting public-sector employees pay the fair share fee violates the employees' First Amendment rights.
