Neuberger Comments on Consequences of Janus Decision

06 July 2018 ABA Journal News
Partner Mark Neuberger was quoted in an ABA Journal article, “Lawsuit to claw back union dues filed after Janus decision,” about a class action lawsuit brought by seven California teachers seeking to win back paid union fees in the wake of last month’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that nonconsenting public-sector employees cannot be compelled to pay union dues.

Neuberger said the decision will weaken the effectiveness of public-sector unions in the 22 states that allowed for mandatory union dues. “On a grander scale, for good or for worse, this decision will lead to a further decline in the percentage of the American workforce that is unionized,” he said.
