Much to what we can only assume is its extreme displeasure, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 775 will comply with the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Harris vs. Quinn earlier this month and has “begun allowing individual [non-union member] home healthcare providers to opt out of paying dues.”
In a letter recently obtained by the Freedom Foundation, the SEIU Local 775 wrote to non-union member healthcare worker who objected to paying dues that they will no longer deduct union fees from future paychecks. The letter reads,
“In light of uncertainty created by the United State Supreme Court’s June 30, 2014, decision in Harris v. Quinn, the union has asked the state to cease deduction of your fair-share fees. No such fees will be deducted from your future paychecks.”
According to the Freedom Foundation, the SEIU Local 775 “noted that it is still ‘analyzing the potential effect of the court decision on our local union’ and had not yet determined whether to refund unconstitutionally collected fees.” Meanwhile, due to the fact that the SEIU Local 775 has yet to publically announce its decision, many non-union member healthcare workers are “likely unaware of their new options.”
The Freedom Foundation predicts that “the union will continue to deduct full dues from these nonmembers until they request otherwise.” So, in an effort to raise awareness, they have “prepared a letter that may be used by individual home healthcare providers who do not wish to pay dues to SEIU 775.” Additionally, the “individuals who believe they may be affected by the Harris decision can learn more about the ruling here.”
