The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31 (AFSCME), a case concerning public employees and mandatory union fees. Mark Janus, a child support specialist with the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, is not a member of AFSCME, but under state law he must still pay for what is called an agency fee, or fair share fee, that goes toward addressing matters such as collective bargaining, grievances, wages, and employment conditions. Mr. Janus argued that paying these dues violates his First Amendment rights because doing so forces him to support the union’s message and politics. close
