The flip side of the right to work debate is being resurrected in Illinois where two government employees are seeking to appeal a dismissal by the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.  The case, Janus v. AFSCME, was originally brought by Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner challenging government worker unions for requiring “fair share” fees from union non-members, ostensibly to cover their “share” of collective bargaining costs. The court dismissed the challenge on the strength of the Supreme Court 4-4 deadlock earlier this year thereby upholding the Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association lawsuit.  Again, with a new Trump appointee sitting on the US Supreme Court, it is far more likely that those “fair share” fees would be found unconstitutional.
