The Supreme Court’s 4-4 vote on unions’ ability to collect dues from non-members is an important win for all unions [“Union dues upheld,” News, March 30].
Non-members reap benefits resulting from the collective bargaining that union dues pay for. This vote helps ensure that collective bargaining will continue, and that is the cornerstone of an effective union.
Elections matter. The Supreme Court matters.
