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.
