Public-employee unions were stung by the U.S. Supreme Court decision this week barring them from collecting dues from non-member workers, but it was not unexpected, according to Hilary Glasgow, executive director of the Colorado WINS union for state employees.
“We’ve seen (this decision) coming for a long time,” Glasgow told a small Pueblo audience of both public union employees and local candidates for office. “But we’re not giving up. Where unions are strong, everyone benefits from higher pay and benefits.”
She was referring to the 5-4 high court ruling this week that collecting union dues from non-member employees was unconstitutional.
