Debate: Free Speech and Unions

Event Description
Is public employee free speech protected? After the U.S. Supreme Court 4-4 split in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, 136 S. Ct. 1083 (2016), two questions remain unsettled in labor law: First, should public employees be forced to subsidize collective bargaining activities conducted by their union? Second, can "opt out schemes" created by public employers and unions, which automatically deduct full membership duesfrom workers until they affirmatively opt out, be stopped?
Join this hot debate and let's explore whether the First Amendment can draw the line between compelled union participation and free speech.
