    Default U.S. Court of Appeals Preserves Fair Share Fees, Dismisses Right-to-Work Case

    (SPRINGFIELD, Ill.) –– The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit on Tuesday, March 21 protected the right of Teamsters Local 916 to collect fair share fees and dismissed a challenge brought on by the Right-to-Work Coalition.

    Circuit Judge Richard Posner dismissed the Coalition’s case filed on behalf of Local 916 fair share member Brian Trygg and another worker. Judge Posner declared that Brian Trygg already had a full and fair opportunity for his case to be heard and that “he missed his chance” to argue that fair share fees are now unconstitutional. The other plaintiff’s case was dismissed as the U.S. Court of Appeals cannot overrule the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Abood.

    Previously, Trygg objected to paying fair share fees to Local 916 based on personal religious beliefs, though he was still afforded the benefits and protections of a Teamster contract, including a merit incentive bonus program with his employer. The plaintiffs, through the Right-to-Work Coalition, sued the Teamsters and AFSCME to avoid paying their representational fees.

    A 1977 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court has held for 40 years that unions are entitled to charge a fair share for work performed to represent individuals who choose not to become full dues-paying union members. Fair share fees are essential to negotiate and enforce a collective bargaining agreement, litigate grievances on behalf of members, file unfair labor practice charges and manage all other employment-related matters.

    The last paragraph says it all.

    I don't understand why the RTW crowd thinks that they shouldn't get the benefits without paying something. I say let them beg the employer on there own and see what they get.

    Those are the same that proudly claim they are owing to no-one and can negotiate for themselves. Those types can be found near the boss man's office daily. What they seem to be confused about is the difference between negotiating and kissing :(:(:(. Negotiations garner better working conditions, higher pay, better benefits. The latter may give them satisfaction but it always leaves a bad taste in their mouths.

    I think we should all crash the most expensive country clubs and demand all use of the property and deals on lobster and demand that we shouldn't have to pay dues.....Maybe live in a van on their parking lot and shower there to.

    I'm going to take your idea and run with it and start at Mar-a-Lago.
