Right to Work

​Right-to-work laws mean that workers have the right to work in a union environment without joining a labor ​union or paying union dues. In states with right-to-work laws, these workers generally receive the same benefits as union members who do contribute union dues.​

Supreme Court Cases

The U.S. Supreme Court deadlocked on a public sector "fair share" case​, Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, in 2016. Now the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a similar case​​, Janus v. AFSCME, with a decision expected in June 2018.
