“This case is a big win for employees…who did not want to be a part of this union in the first place”
Glen Allen, VA – Bob Williams, President of State Budget Solutions, a national organization dedicated to fiscal responsibility, released the following statement regarding today’s Supreme Court’s ruling on public sector unions:
“This case is a big win for the employees in Illinois who did not want to be part of this union in the first place. State governments cannot force collective bargaining on any group, at the behest of union officials. Now, employees in Illinois, and in states with similar public employee laws, are not forced into associating with a union just because a labor-backed politician desperately wants union dues spent on his or her future campaign.”
