Abstract

The US Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in the Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 case, which maintains that mandatory public sector union dues violate workers' First Amendment rights. Jonathan E. Booth argues that despite the case's free speech claims, such 'fair share' fees actually enhance the voice and representation of workers. He writes that if the Court finds against these fees, public sector unions may face declining memberships and falling incomes, which they could counter by increasing engagement with their members in order to prove their value.
