The prior case law on this issue is Abood v. Detroit Board of Education. In that ruling, #SCOTUS said security fees are not compelled speech — as long as they don't fund political activity, and unions keep a firewall between bargaining and political campaigning.
Are they just going to invalidate these fees, or are they going to invalidate the entire legal firewall between bargaining and political activity?
Decades of conservative businesses and politicians have restricted union activity on the legal premise there is *not* a First Amendment right to bargain. If there suddenly is, all those laws could then face new challenges.
They'll try something crafty.
The question is, can they? And if so, what will it be?
Who knows? Maybe the Court's ruling in #Janus will have similar intellectual shallowness.
Let's see how well they do it this time. #SCOTUS
