From the Washington Times:
After the Supreme Court ruled in June that public-sector labor unions couldn’t force nonmembers to pay dues, Mark Smith quickly canceled his membership in American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Local 2700.
But AFSCME said he has to keep paying, at least until his contract ends at the end of this month.
“Unfortunately, winning a Supreme Court decision isn’t the end of things, in many ways it’s just the start,” Patrick Semmens, vice president of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, told The Times. His organization recently sent a letter to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority demanding that it stop automatically deducting union dues from workers’ paychecks.
A spokesman for Metro says it’s just following the list provided by the unions for automatic dues deductions. (more available at Washington Times)
