Trump Administration Sides Against Unions in Key Supreme Court Case

Justice

Pro-union protestors outside the Supreme Court in 2016.

The Trump administration is urging the Supreme Court to allow non-union workers in the public sector to refuse paying union fees.

The plaintiff claims "collective bargaining" fees violate free-speech rights of non-union workers. But conservative justice Antonin Scalia died a month later and the short-handed court ended up with a 4-4 split in April 2016 that left the law intact but set no nationwide precedent.

American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, the Office of Solicitor General sided with a child-support specialist for the state of IL who's challenging AFSCME's legal right to collect so-called "fair-share fees" from union nonmembers.

Also, it has an estimated price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 43.26 and a trailing 12-month price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 19.46. Abrams Bison Investments Llc holds 23.36% of its portfolio in Signet Jewelers Limited for 2.12 million shares.

The administration also reversed an Obama administration stance by supporting OH in its bid to revive a state policy of purging people from voter-registration lists if they do not regularly cast ballots. The end of the fair share arrangement would be a major blow to the political and financial influence of public-sector unions. Those fees, however, could not be used toward political actions.

"Compelling employees to subsidize speech on politics and public policy imposes a severe burden that even highly restrictive prohibitions on speech in the workplace do not", the brief said.

The filing is something of an about-face for the government, which defended the Abood decision during the Obama administration. Janus is the latest in a series of cases in which the Trump administration has switched positions in a major controversy pending before the high court.
