Split Supreme Court Delivers Victory for Unions

A guest column written by Robert Boreanaz, senior partner and labor and employment attorney at Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria, appears in the April 18 issue of the Buffalo Law Journal. In “Labor movement scores victory with split Supreme Court”, Mr. Boreanaz describes a tie vote in the U.S. Supreme Court and the victory it delivered for unions and collective bargaining. On March 29, the Supreme Court reached a 4-4 vote in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a major labor case on union funding. This tie vote upholds the legality of fair share fees and allows unions to maintain the system they use to collect funds that support collective bargaining and obtaining benefits for workers.
