    Christmas came early for Big Labor last week when the National Labor Relations Board handed down a pair of decisions that overturned longstanding precedent and will deliver a windfall to union finances.

    On Wednesday, the NLRB voted 3-to-1 to gut protections for workers who don't want their money spent on politics. In states without right-to-work laws, employees of unionized companies are coerced into paying dues as a condition of employment. But under the Supreme Court's 1988 Beck decision, workers are allowed to withhold the portion of their dues that unions spend on political activity.

    I made this poll after reading a post on the forum and wondered how the Labor board overturned a SCOTUS decision??

    If the SCOTUS no longer matters can states now decide to make Roe V/s Wade illegal? Is this the new liberal precedent?

    Under Dear Leader's regime somehow the unions will trump the SCOTUS.

    LGS, this is a neat subject. I am sure this case will go to the 11th Court of Appeals. If it goes against, plaintiff will SCOTUS pick it up? I would think that business will think a bit more carefully about how arbitration agreements for employment are crafted.
