    Default Unions look for another win with Janus bill

    Interesting. So this state is going to try to stop the damage on it's own.

    HOUSE SPEAKER ROBERT DeLEO will bring a bill to the floor for a vote this week that would allow unions to charge non-members fees for certain services, a response to the Supreme Court ruling last summer that choked off an important source of money for organized labor.

    An affirmative vote in the House would not only be a victory for unions, but a positive step forward for the rocky relationship of late between House Democratic leaders and the stateís largest unions.

    ďItís very important in terms of protecting our working men and women. The Janus decision was looked at as a blow to that, so I think we wanted to send a message here in Massachusetts in response to that decision,Ē DeLeo said Monday.

    The bill (H 3825) was written by the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development and would allow unions to charge non-member employees for representation in arbitration cases and other disputes. Itís a response to the high courtís Janus v. AFSCME decision last summer that barred unions from charging non-members agency fees.

    Passed!!

    House Votes to Allow Unions to Charge Non-Members

    STATE HOUSE, BOSTON — Labor groups applauded the House's passage Wednesday of a bill allowing unions to charge non-members for costs of services and representation, an action prompted by a U.S. Supreme Court decision last year.

    In supporting the bill, House members effectively blunted some of the impacts of the court's Janus vs. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees ruling that said public employees who are not members of a union cannot be required to pay fees or dues.

    The legislation, approved by a 155-1 vote, would allow unions to seek reimbursement for representation stemming from collective bargaining or for other services that benefit non-members.

    "Today the Massachusetts House of Representatives stood up for workers," Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Steven Tolman said in a statement released after the vote. "They stood up for workers and against the right-wing special interests that forced their anti-union views across the country through the misguided and political Janus Supreme Court ruling."
