Quinn and SEIU Say They'll Fight to Protect Workers After Supreme Court Rules Against Them

Governor Pat Quinn says he’s disappointed in the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that prohibits requiring home healthcare workers to pay “fair share’ union fees if they don’t wish to join the union.


Both Quinn and SEIU Healthcare say they will fight to protect workers from any adverse effects of the ruling… but don’t say what steps they will take to do so.


The lead plaintiff in Harris v. Quinn tells 970 WMAY that she simply wants to provide care for her son in their home without interference from a union… while union officials say their representation has improved pay and training for those home workers, and say that could be jeopardized by Monday’s ruling.


The 5-4 decision only applies to home healthcare providers… and not to public sector workers across the board.
