Writing for the majority, Justice Samuel Alito noted that, “Public-sector unions have the right under the First Amendment to express their views on political and social issues without government interference. But employees who choose not to join a union have the same rights.”
the local teacher's union for the system where i taught
the alabama education association
the national education association
there was no "opting out" of being in the union unless you wanted to opt out of teaching in the public school system.
before I transferred from the national guard into the army reserves, I was basically forced to join the guard's Officer Association (read union). membership was not mandatory but any officer failing to "voluntarily" join and pay his/her dues received a "needs improvement" rating under "decision making' and "judgement" on their next officer eval.
