5-4 decision of the Supreme Court that some state workers in certain activities cannot be required to pay dues to cover a union’s cost of collective bargaining.  The decision affecting home health care workers in Illinois undercuts a 1977 ruling that localities do have the power to require such payments from school employees.  From the Cornell University Law School Legal Information Institute
