AFFT in The Washington Post: Conservative Supreme Court hands down rare pro-union decision

An amicus brief filed by Americans for Fair Treatment was quoted by The Washington Post related to a case before the U.S. Supreme Court:

Briefs from the pro-Trump America First Policy Institute and the Americans for Fair Treatment, which works against public-sector unions, demonstrated the importance of the case to conservatives, who fought FLRA’s ruling.

Americans for Fair Treatment claimed that FLRA’s action means “it can transfigure all manner of states, localities, territories, Indian tribes, universities, and non-profits nationwide into federal agencies and give them orders to engage in collective bargaining as it sees fit.” Its brief also said the agency’s decision amounts to an “expansion of FLRA’s jurisdiction [that] inexorably means that the First Amendment rights of untold thousands will be violated.” Because union members only can withdraw their dues withholding after one year, Americans for Fair Treatment said that amounts to “forced membership.”
