Case could destroy pillar of union power
Posted: 1/21/2014 |
Labor unions are at risk of having one of their most successful organizing tactics nullified by the Supreme Court.
On Tuesday, the high court will hear oral arguments in Harris V. Quinn, a case that could upend agreements with state governments that allow taxpayer-funded home-care workers to unionize.
Those deals have helped boost public sector unions in several states at a time when overall union membership is declining.
