The panel will discuss the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Janus v. AFSCME, in which the Court overruled a 1977 decision and held that public employee unions cannot require non-members to support their union’s collective bargaining activities. The panel will discuss the broader context and other attacks on unions in the courts. The panelists will also discuss how employees, employers, and unions are responding, including recent litigation following Janus, and what implications the case may have for private sector employees.
