California Teachers Challenge Union’s Collection of Dues

By The Associated Press — March 20, 2019 1 min read

Five California educators last week filed a lawsuit seeking to stop the state’s top teachers’ union from collecting dues through mandatory paycheck deductions, the latest in a series of similar legal challenges filed across the country.

The suit challenging the California Teachers Association’s mandatory collection of dues follows a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June barring the practice in the public sector.

The teachers are represented by the politically conservative Freedom Foundation, which has represented teachers suing unions in several states.

Teachers’ unions across the country have been bracing for litigation since the high court ruled 5-4 that requiring dues payments forces public-sector workers to endorse political messages that they may find counter to their beliefs.
