Supreme Court Rules Home Healthcare Providers Can't Be Forced To Pay Union Dues

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against Governor Pat Quinn’s administration in a narrow ruling that prevents home health care workers in the state from being compelled to pay “fair share” dues to public sector unions.


The case, Harris v. Quinn, was brought by a group of parents providing health care at home to their disabled children.  The state allowed those parents to unionize… but some parents who opposed union representation were nonetheless required to pay dues to cover the cost of that representation. 


The ruling appears to be limited only to those home health care providers… and not to public sector workers across the board.
