The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that unions must give nonmembers an immediate chance to object to unexpected fee increases or special assessments that all workers are required to pay in closed-shop situations.
The court ruled for Dianne Knox and other nonmembers of the Service Employees International Union's Local 1000, who wanted to object and opt out of a $12 million special assessment the union required from its California public sector members for political campaigning. Knox and others said the union did not give them a legally required notice that the increase was coming.
The union, and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said the annual notice that the union gives was sufficient. The high court disagreed in a 7-2 judgment written by Justice Samuel Alito.

Good news.

Now the very best part of this ruling is that it upsets the decision by the 9th Court of Appeals. I wonder when those people will realize that their opinions may be popular with unions and the left they won't stand with the Supreme Court.

Great news!!!

Once again, the people win and union thugs lose a little more control.

The lefties are squirming now......no tank load of union money pouring into their campaigns.

I was thinking about this exact same thing last night...

If Obamacare goes down this week, then most of Obamas accomplishments of 3 1/2 years, wiped out in 1 weeks time..

Well I tried to give your reputation a boost, pghquest, but C-D won't let me, saying I have to spread it around, but I award it carefully and yours would have been the first in several months. I think they have a thing against people who think clearly.

Wow..that's a lot of money. $12 million "special assessment" just for political campaigning ?
Glad the court ruled like it did. The Obama campaign must be hurting for money. And to think the unions would gladly tax their members to hand over money. How is that helping them in this economy ?

Fox NEVER reports the whole story, but y'all just continue to eat it up anyhow.

What the SC ruled is essentially what Fox reported...BUT...the case was then remanded back to the 9th Circuit for another hearing.

In other words, a question arose during the original 9th Circuit hearing and the SC clarified that. The case is not yet over.
