    Default Biggest change in labor policy next year could come from Supreme Court

    Just in case you somehow missed just how much Trump is taking away from working people, here it is again.

    In September, the justices announced they would hear Janus v. American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees. Unions such as AFSCME depend on those funds and are likely to face steep membership and dues losses if the practice ends. Public-sector unions now account for roughly half of the labor movement, so a loss could be a blow to union power.

    The case involves Mark Janus, an Illinois government worker who objects to being forced to pay a union regular fee, dubbed a "security fee," as a condition of employment. A 1977 Supreme Court precedent called Abood v. Detroit Board of Education said the fees were allowed in contracts between unions and government entities. Janus argues the provision violates his First Amendment rights by forcing him to subsidize political activities he doesn't support. Unions have long argued that they are owed security fees even from non-members to cover the costs of collective bargaining for all the workers at the site.
    President Trump also will have to find a replacement for the chairman of the National Labor Relations Board, the main federal labor law enforcement agency. Philip Miscimarra stepped down as chairman on Dec. 16, leaving the five-member board evenly split between Republican and Democratic members. Under Trump, the board has reversed several key Obama administration-era pro-union rulings, most notably rolling back a "joint employer" rule that made corporations, especially franchisers, potentially liable for workplace violations by other businesses. The eventual pick could face a rough confirmation by Senate Democrats.

    Out here in the real world I never saw anything good come out of the Obama administration that did ant real change for labor.

    The percentage of US workers belonging to unions was 10.7 in 2016, down from 11.1 percent on a year-over-year basis. Union membership rate either dropped or remained stagnant every year under President Obama, eroding from 12.3 percent in 2009.

    Obama had 8 yrs and full complete control for the first two yrs and gave you nothing. But he did destroy the playing field against you. Trade Leading to jobs leaving TTP. Flooding the work field with immigration legal or not and was just beginning to opening the gates with children that would lead to extended families. These people would replace you in the voting booth. Obama was praised at every move and never questioned by the media. ​National Labor Relations Board, all we got there was Obama placing his cronies in place of power.

    See Crazy, you can see what Obama really was when it came to labor while some refuse to acknowledge the dismantling of what we gained.

    Never said Obama was a "God", but said he was more friendly towards labor then any republicans.
    That proof comes directly by the NLRB appointments made by Trump.

    I think if you go back through the old posts, you will see that not of us thought he was a Labor God as you put it. But he actually did some things to improve the situation for labor. Trump has done nothing but take away.

    Obama was no friend of labor.. What he did for labor was more or less dressed the window.. Window dressing as some might call it.. Is Trump good for labor?? Highly doubt it but then again would the alternative been good??

    As you just said, will Trump be good for labor ... Highly doubt it.
    As a retired union man, our days are over, but I still want to support labor, and we aren't with a President that doesn't support us.
    As for the alternative. That is a moot point.
    One thing is for sure, we all will be worst off with every move Trump makes.
    Less safety, because that interferes with productivity.
    Less environmental care, because that hinders profits.

    Gains from the Obama administration dismantled by the Trump administration and Obama was no friend of labor? There's many a labor victory posted on this site that is a direct reflection of those Obama years.

    Obama is much more of a friend of labor than Trump will ever be. And now you admit Trump probably is not. After going on for months how good he would be for our country and our jobs? And blasting us "libs" on the site who said all along he would not be good for jobs in our country.
