Forced to pay?

Last year in a Supreme Court decision known as “Janus,” the high court justices determined state and local government workers cannot be forced to join and pay labor unions.

It was a ruling that shook up decades of labor law.

Until that time, some workers who didn’t join unions still had union dues deducted from their paychecks.

What’s happened in the year since?

We found there hasn’t been the major shakeup in union membership that some expected. Some claim workers are being trapped into union membership despite the Supreme Court decision.

Meantime, some are now in court seeking to be paid back for the dues they were forced to pay in the past.

We’ll also hear from union supporters who say the whole Janus decision is part of a conspiracy to undermine unions nationwide.

That’s on Full Measure this week.
