Supreme Court Rules Unions Must Give Fee Increase Notice

Overturning the judicial activists in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Soviet Employees International Union (SEIU), the Supreme Court yesterday said that labor union thugs "must give nonmembers an immediate chance to object to fee increases or special assessments that all workers are required to pay in closed-shop situations" in a 7 to 2 vote. Members of the SEIU objected to the $12 million special assessment that was intended for political purposes.
What we have here is a beautiful definition of what labor unions do: they promote liberal politics using money from their members. Labor unions are at the heart of the Democratic Party, constantly giving millions to liberal, anti-American and anti-worker causes. The SEIU, AFL-CIO and AFSCME labor unions, and many others, do not help the people they claim to represent. Instead, they promote far-Left causes using union member money. It's the biggest scam in the game.
In this particular situation, the Supreme Court ruled that labor unions have to give sufficient notification about the fee increases. The Ninth Circus Court sided with the SEIU because they legislate their extreme liberal agenda from the bench rather than following the Constitution.
Justice Samuel Alito read the judgement:
Justices Kagan and Breyer dissented from the opinion. There's no surprise with Kagan, as she has zero experience as a judge and is a radical leftist, so she obviously wanted to protect her union friends. This had to do with free speech and the First Amendment.
While this was an important ruling by the Supreme Court, America is anxiously waiting for opinions on Obamacare and the Arizona immigration law.
