Supreme Court ruling is major blow to public worker unions

The U.S. Supreme Court dealt a crippling blow Wednesday to unions representing millions of the nation’s public employees.

The justices ruled that state government workers who choose not to join a union cannot be compelled to pay a share of union dues for covering the cost of negotiating contracts. Unions had said such an outcome would cut off a source of income and diminish their political clout in the nearly two dozen states where they bargain for both members and nonmembers alike.

A recent nonpartisan study predicted that a Supreme Court defeat would eventually cause public employee unions to lose 726,000 members.
