Prof Urges Justices To Tackle Exclusive Bargaining Battle

Law360 (September 3, 2020, 5:55 PM EDT) -- A Maine professor challenging a state law that makes unions the sole bargaining representatives for their members told the U.S. Supreme Court that they must unravel the statute, citing a recent appellate decision that found Ohio's exclusive bargaining law conflicts with recent high court precedent.

The Sixth Circuit upheld Ohio's iteration last week but found in the decision that the law is in "direct conflict with the principles enunciated" in Janus v. AFSCME, in which the justices said it violates the First Amendment to make public sector workers who aren't union members pay fees covering collective bargaining.
