What's Next? Harris v. Quinn and its Impact on Workers After the Supreme Court 2013 Term

Harris v. Quinn, Judith A. Scott, SEIU, What's Next







Paul Guequierre


WHAT: Service Employees International Union General Counsel and member of the ACS National Board of Directors, Judith A. Scott will discuss “What's Next? Harris v. Quinn and its Impact on Workers After the 2013 Term” as part of a series of member and press briefing calls hosted by the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy following the Supreme Court’s 2013 term.

With worker’s rights and the guarantee of a fair workplace under siege, the Supreme Court ruled on the First Amendment as applied to union dues, examining the right to collective bargaining by low wage homecare workers. The potential impact on labor unions as a result of the decision could be harmful. But workers and SEIU are fighting back. In Minnesota home health care workers, for example, took the first step in their push for higher wages and benefits, seeking a union election for about 26,000 personal care attendants. Union officials said it could be one of the largest organizing drives in state history.
