Public unions win on split U.S. Supreme Court vote

Posted By on Tue, Mar 29, 2016 at 9:44 AM

A big victory today for public employee unions. The U.S. Supreme Court divided 4-4 and thus left in place a lower court ruling that allows public employee unions to recover collective bargaining costs from non-union workers covered by the collective agreements.

Had Justice Antonin Scalia lived to vote, he was viewed as a certain anti-union vote.

Presidential elections matter. I'm looking at you Susan Sarandon, quoted today as saying she wasn't sure she could vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Sarandon, a Bernie Sanders supporter, backed Ralph Nader in 2000. We know how well that turned out.
