Supreme Court Rules on Union Membership in Harris v. Quinn Case

Harris v. Quinn comes first today. Hobby Lobby later.

Unions LOSE!

It was not a complete loss, but Harris won the case.

It was 5-4 with Liberals in the minority.

This case involved forcing people like home caregivers to join unions against their will.

Case background:

On its surface, the case deals with home care workers in Illinois who care for the disabled. The plaintiff, Pamela Harris, serves as the caretaker to her son Josh, who suffers from a rare genetic syndrome. The elder Harris receives Medicaid funds to do so and essentially functions as a state employee.

Many state-supported home care workers in Illinois are represented by the union SEIU Healthcare Illinois-Indiana. Under the contract between the union and the state, all home care workers covered under the contract are required to pay a fee to SEIU to cover the expenses associated with bargaining, whether or not they want to be union members.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
