Overturning a longstanding precedent, the United States Supreme Court has held in Janus v. AFSCME that public employees may not be compelled to pay mandatory agency fees, or “fair share” fees, to public-sector unions, because such fees violate the First Amendment. The Janus decision will have a sweeping, nationwide impact on public sector labor unions. The Court’s 5-4 decision immediately affects laws in at least 22 states, including California, that currently allow public sector unions to charge and collect agency or fair share fees.
