Supreme Court Could End Forced Unionization For State Workers

Public sector workers on the state level could be granted the choice of whether or not to join a union if the U.S. Supreme Court decides to hear an upcoming case.

The Supreme Court is expected to decide by the end of April whether to hear Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association. The case argues public sector workers, such as teachers, should have the right to decide whether they want to join a union or pay union fees. This would include agency fees, which require non-union workers to pay for collective bargaining costs.

The case was brought by 10 California teachers with support from the Center for Individual Rights.

Patrick J. Wright, director at the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, argued that workers, including government workers, should have the right to decide whether they want to join a union.

“You should not have to pay agency fees,” Wright told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Public sector workers should have right-to-work as a matter of constitutional law.”

Wright also argued against claims that such a ruling would destroy unions. Looking at states like Michigan, which passed a right-to-work law, he noted a high percentage of workers still are becoming union members. Wright said that the problem is simply giving workers the choice.

Center for Individual Rights.   Where do  all of these organizations come from? It sounds like another liberal type of organization for someones rights. We should have a tea party right  organization too. And start protesting everything the democrats do.

For some reason, AFL-CIO and other unions keep placing their propaganda on my FaceBook page.  I have so much fun ripping into them, that I am sure they regret darkening my page with their lies.  I suspect that they delete my comments as soon as they come to their attention but not before others see the truth!  LOL

Frank, you got it!!  I saw them at the School Board Meetings in California, and thought I was in the middle of "The Godfather".     They are rough, real Tony Soprano types.     Even looked like Guys on the Program, dressed the part.

In California, when I lived out there, five years ago, we were trying to get this on the Ballot.  If you do not belong to a Union in Ca., you do not work.    Then, they take their "Fees" out of your Pay Check, before you ever see it, and send it directly to the Liberal Administration.      I do not have as much Faith as I used to, in the decisions of The Supreme Court, sadly.    "Right To Work" States all have better employment records, and more prosperity.

Jo, no liberal will ever publicly admit to the real employment numbers when compared between union and "Right To Work" states.  They have to ignore them so they can go on living the lie, because living a lie is easier for them than acknowledging the truth.

One thing of note, all Unions have an ancestry of Socialism and Communism, the creators of the Progressive Movement, that today is represented by the Progressive party, those Bastards led by the Chief Bastard Obama, that are destroying America today.

I have often wondered, who was the political idiot that allowed forced unionization for public jobs (i.e. teachers, police, etc.) in the first place?  That is just a bad deal all the way around.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
