The Trump administration is urging the Supreme Court to allow non-union workers in the public sector to refuse paying union fees.
The White House agrees with the DOJ on a case against unions brought by an Illinois non-union government employee.
The plaintiff claims “collective bargaining” fees violate free-speech rights of non-union workers.
This reverses the previous administration’s stance on unions.
Solicitor General Noel Francisco said the Supreme Court should overturn a 1977 ruling allowing public sector unions in 22 states to demand fees from non-union workers.
Francisco said the rule forces these employees to back unions that might not push for their priorities.
